I just upgraded to Outlook Extensions 1.1 and Addin Express .NET 2.5 and now every time I select a folder that should show a custom explorer form I get the following exception...

Detailed technical information follows:

What Happened

AddinExpress.OL.ADXOlFormContainer error: the add-in installation has fired an exception.

Where Presumably this happened

Error occured in the code of ADXOlFormContainer . See 'Details' section to get more detailed information about the error.

I did some experimentation and I found that if I create a com addin with a shim project and then add a simple form and assign it to a folder everything works fine. If I create a com addin without a shim project I get the above exception.

I cannot create a shim project because the last time I upgraded to 2.4 I found that my options page would not work when there was a shim project.

I need a suggestion on how to resolve this quickly.

Jim,

I cannot reproduce this exception.

Please, give me more information.

What build of Addin Express .NET 2.5 do you use (1758 or 1759)?
What Outlook version do you have?
Please, look into GAC and tell me if it contains old versions AddinExpress.MSO and AddinExpress.OL.2003.

Did you set the Host Configuration for Outlook?

Jim,

If you works without Shim you should use the 'Host configuration' dialog to configure Office applications to load .NET v1.1.4322 (right click on the addinmodule and choose the 'Host configuration' option, double click on Outlook and set v1.1.4322).

Let me know about the result.
