I had this problem when building the setup project for a toolbar application.

I solved the issue, and thought I would share it with others.

The pathname for AddinExpress.IE.tlb is too long when stored using the installation defaults:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Add-in Express\Add-in Express 2010 for Internet Explorer\AddinExpress.IE, Version=6.0.365.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4416dd98f0861965\AddinExpress.IE.tlb

I removed the "Add-in Express 2010 for Internet Explorer" subdirectory ending up with

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Add-in Express\AddinExpress.IE, Version=6.0.365.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4416dd98f0861965\AddinExpress.IE.tlb

and this works. As part of this change, I had to update a few registry entries using regedit.

This is a Microsoft bug, but I recommend that Add-in Express alter their default installation pathnames.

My environment is Vista Home Edition (64 bit edition), Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition (Version 9).
