Problems with RTD server using VS 2005 C#

I am having problems getting my RTD server to work with Excel 2002. I have read through all relevant posts about RTD, and can find no solution.

I downloaded the patch for VS2005 for add-in support as well, no luck.

I created a RTD project using ADX.NET, then I created a topic and made a handler for the RefreshData event. I started excel, and used the appropriate RTD formula, but all I get is #N/A.

I have had no luck with RTD in C#, but I do have a working C++ RTD server.

Hi Jeff.

Did you register the RTD server via the Register ADX Project option in VS?
Does the MyFirstRTDServer example work on your PC?

I tried the Register ADX project option, but it had no effect.

The example project MyFirstRTDServer example does not work on my PC either.

Jeff,
is the C++ RTD server written in Managed C++ or it is an unmanaged dll?
Do you have both .NET Framework v1.1 and v2.0 installed on the PC?

Yes, the C++ server is from Microsoft, and is an unmanaged dll.

I do have both versions of .Net framework on the computer.

But, on another computer I was able to get MyFirstRTDServer to work, both versions of .Net, VS 2003, Office 2003 as well as the Office patch for RTD.

I would really like to develop in VS 2005 though, any help is appreciated.

Hi Jeff.

Please check if other add-ins/rtd servers written for .NET 1.1 running at the same time in Excel. If so, the RTD server written for .NET v2.0 will not work.
