Hello

I'm creating my first add in from this tutorial

http://www.add-in-express.com/creating-addins-blog/2010/05/14/office2010-addins-getting-started/

When I reached the step after a successful build that requires selecting Register ADX I see that it is not an available option.

After searching the forums and trying a few different things I have not made much progress.

Machine/Framework specs:

- Windows 7 64bit

- .Net 4.5

- Visual Studio 2013 Express for Desktop

- Office 2010

Steps I have taken thus far:

- Experimented with moving the Loader folder around in my project. It was in C:\Users\me\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\C#\MyAddin1\MyAddin1\ by default. I moved it one directory up, and then further down into a bin folder but not changes.

- Installed the VSTO runtime on my machine

- Tried to register the adxloader64.dll with regsvr32. This fails with error code 0x80070002
below are the contents of adxloader.log

Hello Weston,

Thank you for choosing Add-in Express.

Please search the manual for the string "If you use an Express edition of Visual Studio".

As to failing to register the add-in, the issue is caused by the assembly AddinExpress.MSO.2005.DLL missing in the folder containing adxloader64.dll.
