Hi,

I have a problem with the ClickTwice setup method.
It seems that Redemption DLLs are not included in the install package.

Steps :
1/ I create the Setup (MSI) project (using Add-In Express/Create Setup project).
2/ I tried to add all Redemption DLL (interop + 2 dlls) in the Setup Project.
3/ Then I publish the setup using Add-In Express/Publish

But I have an error when I run my add-in in Outlook. I suppose it comes from the lack of the Redemption DLLs.
The <HOME>/appData/Local/<myaddin>/<title> does not include the Redemption DLLs.

When I run the MSI setup from the setup project. The Redemption DLLs are in the appData folder. However I still have the error (which means it could be another error - even if the add-in runs correctly on the PC used for development).

Do you have instructions somewhere to include third-party DLLs in the Click-Twice setup ?

Thanks

Hello Emmanuel,

ClickTice operates on a .MSI installer that you create. The installer is a regular .MSI installer and this is why there are no special instructions on including a third-party DLL(s) in the installer.

You need to make sure that a) your installer delivers these DLLs to the target folder, and b) that you place these DLL according to the deployment rules that Redemption implies (if any).

Hi Andrei,

Thanks for your answer and expertise precious time ! :-)

Everything works fine now... Hum, I guess I was using the wrong Setup .msi !! Shame on me !!

For these who would have the same need (not obvious for newbies as I am...) :
1/ You have to use the Redemption Loader, see http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/security.htm#redemptionloader, unless you want to have to register the Redemption COMs
2/ Create the MSI Set up project using the Add-In Express wizard
3/ Add the Redemption DLLs to the Setup Project
4/ Build the Setup Project
5/ Publish (ClickTwice) using Add-In Express Wizard
The Redemption DLLs will be copied in your add-on installation folder.
