Hello,

Following an update of Office I had lost the possibility of debugging my dll which is in a long way unfortunately the solution that I had found in this link (https://www.add-in-express.com/forum/read.php?FID=1&TID=14305) seems to no longer work. On the other hand I found another procedure that does not use the previous one and that seems better

Here's the procedure to follow and that worked for me
Config: W10 + Delphi 10.1 and Office 2016 64 bits

1) Build the dll in debug mode
2) Go to C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ root \ Office16 to right-click on WINWORD.EXE and "execute as administrator"
3) In word go in File -> Options -> Complement -> click on the button to reach and add the dll with the button "Add"

4)Now, breakpoint should work. After this, if the dll is built for Excel and Powerpoint it is useless to redo the manipulation.

Warning I noticed that if you do an update of Office you have to redo the manipulation

I hope that this procedure will help you !

Hello Karim,

We can't reproduce this issue.

We can only suggest using a short path or attaching to the process. Also, you can use different settings in Debug in Release modes.
