It is version for VS2008 ,you need to make some changes to support VS2010.
Download latest CopySourceAsHtml msi and install it

2.Create a folder named Addins under C:\Users\<username>\My Documents\Visual Studio 2010 and copy CopySourceAsHtml.AddIn here.
3.Modify Line #5 and #9 change <Version>9.0</Version> to<Version>10.0</Version>
4.Launch Visual Studio 2010 –> Tools –> Addin Manager, if you see CopySourceAsHtml shows up, then it’s enabled successfully.
