Hey,

i have created an empty word addin (to secure that the problem is not caused by my code) with minimum required Office version of 2000. After that I have created a new WiX setup project by using your wizard. The installer runs well for Office 2007/2010/2013 but not for Office 2000/2003. The addin just does not show up under "COM-AddIns".


Add-in Express Version 7.2.4055
RegisterForAllUser is set to True (Before setup creation)


Here are the logs for a system that runs Office 2003:

Hello Mark,

Thank you for the logs. They show that the add-in gets registered and loaded correctly.

The add-in doesn't show in the COM Add-ins dialog because Office 2000-2003 don't show per-machine add-ins in that dialog.
