When creating an ADX COM Add-in, I follow the steps in the video for the Excel addin. After the last wizard screen, I see the error that is copied b below. I can continue creating the project and the resulting add-in does work, but I have to add a reference to the Excel COM library in order to get access to Excel objects such as the Application.

Detailed technical information follows:

Hi Morris.

You just need to install PIAs for Office 2003.
For some reason they are registered in the system registry of your PC but they don't exist in the GAC folder.
