Did you try installing it from gallery?

Clicking on the link in the extension gallery takes you to ... ... that's where i got it.

One of the links pointed to the project site, but it does not mean that versions are identical. Version in the gallery tested with BE 2.0 before uploaded.

You need to add this code to make it work with BE 2.0


using BlogEngine.Core.Web.Extensions;  // Required for BE 2.0 when using ExtensionSettings


To every file in the AddThis Extension :)

I added that code to the AddThis.cs file and I'm still getting the same error.

I just looked at the error again and I realized it was for the ifle AddThisButton.cs.  So I changed it on that and it gave me an error for another file.  I eventually had to change this for every file in the BookmarkButtons directory as well as the AddThis.cs file in the extensions directory.  But now it seems to be working OK.
