Hi,

Is it possible to call adxlauncher via command line to perform an unregister/register? If not, is there any way to programmatically accomplish whatever is being done by adxlauncher.exe when the unregister/register buttons are clicked?

We have a situation where some users do not restart outlook to complete an add-in upgrade so the add-in never becomes registered. We are considering creating a tool to check for this situation and perform the registration.

Thanks,

Mark

Hello Mark,

It isn't possible to achieve this. I strongly suggest that you set DisplayAlerts=true on your add-in module; this will produce the effect desired.

Thanks for your reply. Can you provide a little more information about what DisplayAlerts will do? Will it alert the user that the upgrade didn't complete and ask them to register?

Hello Mark,

DisplayAlerts=True causes Add-in Express to show a warning message if the host application is running when the add-in is being uninstalled. You use the OnBeforeDisplayAlerts event to customize the message or to prevent the message from being shown.
