I try to run the Delphi "xlautomationaddin" sample with Windows 10 (2004) and Office/Excel 365 (64Bit). I compiled the DLL for 64Bit. But I am not able to register the DLL (regsvr32 WksFunction.dll). It stops with error code 0x80004005.

Hello Thomas,

That HResult relates to permissions. I don't have that example, could you please point me to it? Can it be that the example implements a per-machine COM add-in? If so, the issue may relate to the fact that an Excel add-in is a per-user entity.

It seems you are right. When I run "regsvr32" as administrator, it works.

Hello Thomas,

That project is a per-machine COM add-in. To be an Excel add-in it must be per-user. Check section Registering with User Privileges; see the PDF file in the folder {Add-in Express}\Docs on your development PC.

And yes, you should start Delphi via Run as administrator.
