ADX2.7 Loader not GAC'ing?

This is an odd one, I really need help :-)

I use the new ADX2.7 Loader. My add-in starts up fine and the problem is with a clean image/install non-dev machine.

The one problem I have is with using a Outlook Extension (1.3) WebViewPane form. I get the error: 'Cannot load type AddinExress.MSO.ADXRemoteObject...'. I don't get any other errors for the add-in, including where I use other forms that are either TopSubPane or BottomSubpane. It's just on the WebViewPane form layout.

I imagined this error was because the ADX MSO dll wasn't in the GAC, and it wasn't.

I checked and checked the setup, and I do call DllRegister in the Install Custom Actions (remember, the addin does install and work apart from this error).

A few weeks ago when I start with ADX2.7 I was sure this was working ok, and even got an old install to check. The ADX MSO dll did go into the GAC for that one before, without any custom actions of my own.

I am comparing old and new setups and they seem identical.

What could cause the adxloader.dll to register correctly but not copy the ADX MSO dll into the GAC???

For follow up info: If I put the AddinExpress.MSO in the GAC using the Installer (i.e. insert assembly into the File System GAC directory in a VS2003 setup project) then I get the following error dialog when trying to view the WebViewPane form:

"Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation."

Note that this is not the normal ADX Global Exception handler dialog, or anything I coded in - the dialog has no window title and just an OK button.

Hi David.

I can't reproduce the issue.
Could you please send me the add-in project? I will test it on my PC.

Hi Sergey. All fixed now, it looks like the 'problem' was that I mistakenly thought the adxloader DllRegister caused the AddinExpress.MSO to go into the GAC, when in fact I needed to do this myself.

I rolled back to a setup script that worked ok before and found that I had been putting extensibility.dll and the AddinExpress.MSO into the GAC myself. Note sure how I managed to confuse myself over this, but all seems ok now.

PS If you want to see what ADX Outlook Extensions can do (;-) then take a look at http://www.taglocity.com
