Tomorrow, we'll look for a way to inform Microsoft about this issue.

Hi Andrei,

In all our attempts to get things working we had changed some of the trust center settings. When I tried to manually load the addin it told me that it was blocked in Trust Center. I reset the Trust Center settings to default and the addin loaded successfully.

Thanks!
Mark

Hello Mark,

Reset? Could you please provide more details? On "loaded successfully": does it load right after installing it or only after you add it manually?

In the recent Insider build of Excel from Office Store we see that the XLL add-in doesn't load after installing it: it isn't mentioned on the File | Options | Add-ins tab.

Hi Andrei,

Here's exactly what I did.

1. Tried to manually register the addin. It said it was blocked by trust center settings.
2. Went in to trust center and down to addins. Open was checked which I thought meant allow but it meant block so I just reset to defaults.
3. Relaunched Excel. My addin was in the disabled list.
4. I enabled it
5. Closed Excel and went back in to ensure it stayed
6. It did!
