After a multiple attempts of install and re-install of Addin express 9.4, I am writing this to inform you that I am unable to find Addin Express under the help menu of visual studio 2017 on windows 7. It also does not display the menu on the context menu of the project explorer.

Kindly suggest steps to proceed.

Hello Hrishikesh,

Please follow the suggestions below:

- Close all Visual Studio instances and make sure there's no devenv.exe processes hanging in the Processes tab of the Task Manager window before you start the installer.

- Make sure you are an administrator on the PC.

- Set UAC to its default level.

- In Control Panel | System | Advanced | Performance | Settings | Data Execution Prevention, set the "... for essential Windows programs and services only" flag.

- Remove the following registry key, if it exists:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Add-in Express\{product identifier} {version} {package}

- Run setup.exe, not .MSI. Start setup.exe by right clicking it and choosing “Run as administrator” in the context menu.

If the above steps did not help, please restart your machine and run the installer. If the error persists, turn your antivirus software off for a while, install the product, and then turn the antivirus on again.
