I hope i can explain the situation correctly but if anyone needs any clarification then please let me know

In my application I am generating a certain amount of pre defined modules, all of which are launched from one module (Launch Station). At the moment i have hard coded in the values which allow me to specify which modules to launch (these contants are stored in the shell UIExtensionSiteNames.cs)

Going forward I wish to be able to add new modules to the project and to be able to launch these without having to change the code which is currently not possible as any new files i add would also require a change in the UIExtensionSiteNames.cs.

I was hoping to be able to add new modules and to be able to add reference to these by updating the productcatalog.xml file which i could then access from the launch station module

Can anybody let me know if this is possible or not and if so how i can achieve it?
