Hello,

I am using following manifest to install the addin:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
<assemblyIdentity name="My.AddIn, PublicKeyToken=78674a21f8e407f1" imageRuntimeVersion="v4.0.30319">
<addinName>my addin</addinName>
<supportedApps>15</supportedApps>
<displayAlerts>true</displayAlerts>
<loadBehavior>3</loadBehavior>
</assemblyIdentity>
<loaderSettings generateLogFile="true" shadowCopyEnabled="false" privileges="administrator" />
</configuration>

SupportedApps ist set with a custom action before the addin-Action. After installation the Loadbehavior ist set in HKLM and HKLU.
Is that correct?
The registry keys in the adxregistrator.log are all in HKLM.
When will the keys be created in HKLU?

Regards

Hello Thomas,

LoadBehavior is set only in HKCU or HKLM depending on the settings chosen. Can it be that you have this add-in (or an older version of it) installed both per machine and per user?

Hello Andrei,

no, it is installed only per machine, no older versions are installed. I have the same problem with a new project and a new generated setup with the changed manifest.

Thomas,

Thank you for sending me the project.

The issue is seemingly caused by your environment: you don't have an SDK installed; this ends with no setup.exe generated.

To solve this issue, make sure you have the following folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\SDK\BootStrapper. It must contain three folder: Engine, Packages, and Schemas. I suppose the folder gets created when you install Visual Studio.

Hello Andrei,

The wix-Setup generates a msi-file. If it is startet with Administrator privileges the addin is installed.
The registry keys will be added in HKLM and HKLU.

The sdk is installed on the environment - a setup.exe is not generated

Hello Andrei,

Setup.exe is now generated - AfterBuild in the project file was not enabled.

With the setup.exe (with Admin-Prompt) same result. The Registry Keys are created in HKLM and HKLU.

I've talked to our guys. It turned out I was wrong saying "LoadBehavior is set only in HKCU or HKLM depending on the settings chosen". It appears, Add-in Express creates also an entry in HKCU to store per-user settings. Please accept my apology for misleading information.

Hello Andrei,

is the entry in HKCU created only for the user, who installs the addin? What if there are different user-accounts on the machine?
