"Active" custom task pane on Excel 2013 and Windows 8.1

Hi

In Excel 2013, when calling ADXExcelTaskPanesCollectionItem.TaskPaneInstance, I have the task pane instance of the active workbook in Windows 7, but in Windows 8.1, it always gives me the first instance of the TaskPaneInstances collection (confirmed by calling TaskPaneInstances.IndexOf()).
Is there a problem in windows 8.1 or am I doing something wrong somewhere ?

Hello Florent,

This doesn't occur in our tests. Could you please send us a project reproducing the issue?

Hello Florent,

Thank you for the project. We've reproduced the issue. It is now filed under #5647 in our bug-tracking DB.

Note that you can populate the pane using a small delay after the WorkbookActivate event, see the section Wait a Little in the PDF file in the folder {Add-in Express}\Docs on your development PC.

Hello Florent,

We've created a new version of Add-in Express assembly responsible for creating Add-in Express panes in Excel. We've also modified the manual to reflect the changes. In a couple of minutes I'll send you a download link and instructions as well as the modified part of the manual.
