Hello,
I developed a WordAddin. In my project I created in the Menu "Add-in Express" -> "Create a Setup Project" a setup project.

In 99% the Setup works fine and the Wordaddin is working correctly. But sometimes the WordaddIn is not loading.
Now I find out the following behavior:

When I install the WordaddIn for "Current User" it works fine.
(Find Registrydate in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Word\Addins\GutachtenManagerWordAddIn.AddinModule)

If I install it for "All User", the WordAddIn is not working.
Also, when I execute the Setup.exe in "Admin Mode" it is not working.
(Find Registrydate in HKEY_LOCAL_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Word\Addins\GutachtenManagerWordAddIn.AddinModule)

Do you have a solution for this problem ?

Hello Andreas,

First off, please verify if your installer works correctly if you start setup.exe using the Run as administrator command.

To create a per-machine installer you need to follow steps listed in section Deploying a per-machine Office extension via an MSI installer, see the PDF file in the folder {Add-in Express}\Docs on your development PC.

If you use WiX, you can create an installer that allows the user to choosing whether to install the add-in per machine or per user; see section Dual-Purpose Installers.
