I have an Addin express plugin for Excel. It installs as a COM add-in and an Excel add-in. My code is in a DLL file. I have changed my program setup to us adxregistrator instead of adxloader, and the COM component installs in Excel 64. The formulas are not recognized in the 64 bit excel. They do work properly in 32 bit. So it looks like only half of the install process is working. How can I get my formulas to work properly in 64 bit excel?

My installation custom action is:

adxregistrator /install="mydll.dll"

I'm using an MSI installation project.

Please check the corresponding section under the section Deployment Step-by-steps in see the PDF file in the folder {Add-in Express}\Docs\ on your development PC.

Is your COM add-in per-user? The point is: Excel UDFs are per-user only, the COM add-in must be per-user, too.
