Is it possible to install a new .msi for my Outlook add-in, without closing / restart outlook ?

The .msi is a "silent" installation.

We want to install via sccm so we don't need to "disturb" the users.

Hello Benn,

You can install. There's no problem about that. You cannot *uninstall* because the host application loads and locks your add-in files (specifically, adxloader.dll or adxloader64.dll). The only way to unlock the files is to close the host application.
