An Add-in Express based Office extension can be registered using regsvr32.exe:

Registering: regsvr32.exe {path}\{adxloader.dll or adxloader64.dll}
Unregistering: regsvr32.exe /u {path}\{adxloader.dll or adxloader64.dll}

For an XLL add-in, the loader names include the assembly name, say, adxloader.MyXLLAddin1.dll (adxloader64.MyXLLAddin1.dll).

The above assumes that all of the add-in files are located in the same folder. The manual see section Files to Deploy in the PDF file in the folder {Add-in Express}\Docs on your development PC lists the files to be deployed as follows:

First of all, all interops required for your add-in should be included.

AddinExpress.MSO.2005.dll Add-in Express runtime.
adxloader.dll 32-bit loader; required for Office 2000-2007, and 32bit Office 2010-2016
adxloader64.dll 64-bit loader; required for 64-bit Office 2010-2016
adxloader.dll.manifest Add-in Express Loader Manifest
adxregistrator.exe Add-in registrar utility
intResource.dll Optional. Ensure compatibility between various Add-in Express based add-ins.
intResource64.dll Optional. Ensure compatibility between various Add-in Express based add-ins.
