I created an Add-In Express Excel COM add-in about 6 years ago. Essentially adds an Excel ribbon menu that allows the user to access various commands and settings related to an XLL add-in. I have barely touched this since, but now need to create a 64-bit version.

I am guessing I have to a create a new ADX com addin. But how do I transfer my old ribbon into this new add-in? If you could just give me a few hints to get started. It is probably real simple - I hope....

Ok - Figured it out. Created a new ADX Com Addin. Copy/pasted my ribbons and menus into the new project. Copied all the code over. Manually went thought and set all the events. Mostly I was worried about having to recreate the whole menu structure - this was pretty painless.
