I have a solution (VS 2005) that contains a ADX project, a Shim and a Setup.

When I attempt to register the ADX I get the following error message:
The "ADX Path\bin\release\ADXProjName_shim.dll" file does not exist in the output directory. Which it doesn't, however, I have other project where it does not exist in the ADX proj's output dir and it finds it in the shim output dir.

Where is the path to the shim set for the ADX Register function?

Hi Jack.

Please rebuild the shim project only. Do you get any error messages in the Output window of Visual Studio?
Also rebuild the add-in project only to make sure that you don't have errors in the add-in code.

Jack, did you change the output directory in the add-in project?

The build output paths are"
ADX project: bin\Release\
Shim: $(SolutionDir)$(ConfigurationName) and the config is release.

Okay I have something that is totally configed incorrrect. When I build my project I and install it on a workstation I have two entries for the addin (see: http://www.sonomaenterprises.com/aa/addin.gif) the SR to Outlook Integration and the SRSync are the same project.

I have deleted the shim and recreated it and still cannot get it to register and install correctly.

Suggestions?

Hi Jack.

Please check the ShimProgID property of the addinmodule.
Does it contain the correct prog ID of the shim project?
