REmove addin after change in Delphi

I registered an add in for MS Word and forgot to un-register it (from Delphi IDE).

The I changed the source and installed my add in again.

Pfff -- when un-registering the latter the first one stays there.

I searched the registry but I cannot figure out how to delete the new item in the context menu of MS Word.

Any idea?

Thanks,
Uwe

Hi Uwe,

The general way: you can write a macro like this

Public Sub ResetCommandBar()
  Dim CmdBar As CommandBar

  Set CmdBar = Application.CommandBars.Item("Text")
  CmdBar.Reset
End Sub


The rough way: remove Normal.dot template

I deleted the normal.dot but still it seems that some "things" are not deleted.

Is there some other "hard" way to really remove everything and get back a clean MS Word without re-installing?

Thanks,
Uwe

Hi Uwe,

What things are left?

Sometimes I get the error message that e. g. a TabSheet is already existing. Even after un-registering my AddIn and deleting the normal.dot.

I think it is also the problem with the TForm in my other post: Maybe there is something I do not freee correctly and thus get the exception.

I want to remove everything and start from scratch.

Hi Uwe,

Unregister your add-in. Make sure that no add-in is run (checked) via COM Add-ins dialog box. Remove Normal.dot template. That's all.
