Whatever I do, it crashes Word.

Supposedly, the issue originates from the interop which is incorrect in some respect. We met such situations several times with Office type libraries. We suggest that you create a native-code C++ add-in to check if this works at all.

Well, as we've figured out that it works if the add-in is registered from VS, do you still think the problem is in the code?

Isn't it possible that the problem is in the deployment?

I found this article: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/gsmyth/archive/2013/07/12/add-in-for-64-and-32-bit-office.aspx

However, I'm not sure what adxregistrator.exe actually does.

Hello Andrei

I suppose you were right. There was a problem with the interop. I've implemented the COM server (expint.dll) now in C++. There is no crash anymore in 32bit Word. :)

Thanks for you help.
