I always see the tool tip and status text for my context menu items down in
the status bar of mmc. By any chance did you customize your mmc view and
uncheck the status bar option?
I'm using the dreaded VB Snap-in Designer. It has its limitations, but the
status bar and tooltips work fine.

Thanks for the reply, but I don't think this is it.
Context menu (IExtendContextMenu) status bar text works fine (aside from the
fact that when they write to the status bar they wipe out what was there
previously as they clear - and there is no event fired that allows you to
replace that status text).
I was referring to menu buttons (IMenuButton):
The tool tip text doesn't work at all (and there is no option for status bar
text - however the resource that I used has status text - but it doesn't get
used either, not that I really expected it to. this is annoying because
even though status text isn't available, viewing the button wipes out
existing status text).
... and toolbar buttons (IToolbar) that have both a button text, and a
tooltip text. The tooltip works fine (and again there is no option for
status text), however the "lpButtonText" parameter appears to do nothing:
