Hello Simon,

Try to rebuild your project and then click Populate. Does this help?

Is your project built for the Any CPU platform?

Hello Simon,

Is there the Loader folder in your add-in project? Does the folder contain the manifest file?

Is the issue reproducible with a newly created project?

The Loader folder in the project was empty - the files had yellow triangles in Solution Explorer. I copied files adxloader.dll, adxloadr64.dll, adxloder.dll.manifest from Project/Publish/Loader folder to Project/Loader, incremented the version number, rebuilt the project and published it. Now when I click on the .application file it installs OK!

Thanks Andrei - great support
