Hi guys,

Ive found similar problems on the forum but am unable to resolve mine. Basically I can create and register Outlook, Powerpoint and Access Addins but are unable to register Word or Excel addins.

This is for newly created addins with minimal features. I have not moved or copied any projects and I have not changed or updated my versions of Visual Studio (i am using VS 2005) or of ADX (i am using Version 2.4 Build 1757).

The addins register in HCU/software/microsoft/office etc but do not throw errors if the word/excel is open when registered - so i understand that this means they are not registering at all.

I hope someone can give me some insight into what may be causing this.

Thanks in advance
Jeff
