Delphi XE6, Excel PlugIn...
Development machine... everything works... wrote my app... Now testing it on multiple machines. Development machine has Excel 2013. Works fine...

Went to Laptop. Admin user, with Excel 2010. Installs fine.

Machine 2. Installed as standard user.... Ran Excel 2010... Did NOT see plugin... Suspecting problem with regsvr32 command. Opened up a CMD window as Admin. Ran regsvr32 mydll.dll .... Got the popup window saying the dll is registered. Start Excel 2010, no plugin. It is NOT on the toolbar. It does NOT show up under File/Options anywhere (disabled or not). If I Logout, and login as an Admin on the same machine (do not re-install or anything else), then it shows up, runs fine...

What am I overlooking?

Thanks

Hello George,

Is your add-in per-user or per-machine? Is UAC enabled on Machine 2?
