Upgraded to ADX 2.8 and get ADX Loader Error -2146234304

I've upgraded my VS2003 project to use the new ADX 2.8 and OL Extension 1.5.

Once I've done the uninstall/install of the new packages, and clean/recompiled my solution, I get the following error on Outlook startup:

ADX Loader Error
The loader is trying to run the following assembly:
'MyProject, Version 1.0.123.12345, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1231231231
The operation fails with HRESULT = -2146234304'.

A quick look in the readme.txt and whatsnew.txt files doesn't show any breaking changes.

What have I missed?

In case it helps to find the solution I'm experiencing a similar problem. I'm using Visual Studio 2005, ADX 2.8 (no other ADX plugins) and get a similar error:

The loader is trying to run the following assembly:
''.
The operation fails with HRESULT = -2147024809

It's interesting that in my case I don't get an assembly name like in your case.

Looking forward to a solution for this.

Ooops - my bad.

I forgot to update the adxloader.dll (from the new one in \Add-in Express .NET\Redistributables) in the path - I guess it's been updated...

All working now.

Thank you for the info David,

For the record, I applied the same solution and it seems to work fine for me in my dev machine.

I will report back here if the installer reports the same problem

Hi Guys,

I upgraded to the latest ADX and the OL extension. I updated my adxloader file. When I install my recompiled setup project, I get "The installer was interrupted before <product> could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again".

I have rebooted my machine since getting this error the first time but this had no effect.

Did the steps you took to upgrade work for your installers?

Hi,

an update. I updated the installer's version number, productcode and upgradecode and it now appears to work. I have sent it into system testing....

Hi Harry.

Did you copy a new ADX loader to the 'Loader' subdirectory of the add-in project?
