Totally stranded: System.ArgumentException in regasm.exe

as a total newbie I may have missed something important: I have Office 2007 (beta) on Windows XP with C# Express.

There are no "register me" items on the build menu bar as described in the tutorial so downloaded .Net Framework SDK 2.0 and tried to register the DLL manually with "regasm.exe". It throws an exception

RegAsm : error RA0000 : An error occurred inside the user defined Register/Unreg
ister functions: System.ArgumentException: The path is not of a legal form.
at System.IO.Path.NormalizePathFast(String path, Boolean fullCheck)
at System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(String path)
at AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule.ADXRegister(Type t)
at MyAddin1.AddinModule.AddinRegister(Type t) in C:\dev\09-office-addin\vs\MyAddin1\MyAddin1\AddinModule.cs:line 77

which path is illegal?

Hi Eckard.

Please use the 'Register ADX Project' option of the context menu of the addinmodule designer.
