Hi

I am trying to create installer with automatic updates. I followed the blog over here which has C# to check for updates. This works fine.

But I couldnt make this automatic updates which doesnt need any code to work.

I published version 1 with automatic updates enabled and installed version 1. Then published version 2 with automatic updates enabled. When I launch excel I dont get any prompt for new updates available. I have checked every time the host application runs(exactly with all the options chosen in the blog post).

Thanks
Kiru

Hello Kiru,

Make sure you install the add-in by running the downloader; check section Installing the add-in on that page.

Hi Andrei

Yes I used the downloader exe file not the msi file.

Thanks

Kiru,

Can it be that you don't sign the add-in and your antivirus kills the updater?

If this isn't the case, please provide the setting used to publish the installers.
