Hello,

I'm following the tutorial in the video (https://www.add-in-express.com/creating-addins-blog/2011/08/04/video-creating-excel-udf-dot-net/).

Using Visual Studio .Net 2017 Community Edition on Windows 10 Home edition.

I am able to create a project with the ADX XLL Add-In template (installed using adxnet-v901-b4620-vs-std.msi) and compile it. However, the Register ADX project command is not available in any of the menus.

If there is documentation to register the XLL manually please let me know.

Thanks and regards,

Amit Kohli

Hello Amit,

There's no way to register an Add-in Express project manually. You can create an installer of your add-in and install it.

Please make sure Add-in Express is listed in the About dialog: choose Help | About in the main menu of the Visual Studio IDE to open it.

Hello Andrei,

Thank you for getting back to me and greetings from Houston.

Add-in Express is not listed in the About dialog, thanks for pointing this out. How do we fix this?

Is this not a feature of the Standard edition of Add-in express? I installed it using the setup file in conjunction with the file adxnet-v901-b4620-vs-std.msi

Thanks and regards,

Amit Kohli

Hello Amit,

Please close all Visual Studio instances and try to execute this command line:

"{path e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\Common7\IDE}\devenv.exe" /updateconfiguration

Then start VS 2017 and check the About dialog.

We got several similar reports recently. We investigate the issue.
