Hi Add-in Express Team

Recently, some of our customers failed to use our Excel add-in by Citrix environment. although they're Memory requirement is 8G in Virtual machine, but still meet many issues, for example, out of memory issue.

the customer's IT setup is:
Windows 7 virtual clients in a Citrix environment with XenDesktop 7.11 (Citrix Studio Version 7.11.0.40). In the background we use virtual clients under VMWare vsphere Client version 6.5.0.23000.


the loader logs is:

This file is outdated. Starting from Add-in Express 8.6 (and you use the loader from 8.2) the default location of the log file is {user profile}\AppData\Local\Temp\<ProductName>\adxloader.log; the ProductName part reflects the ProductName field of AssemblyInfo.cs (AssemblyInfo.vb).

Also, if possible, reinstall your add-in, start Excel and, while Excel is started, send me copies of adxloader.log and adxregistrator.exe.

Hi Andrei,

Thank you for your info.
The log is correct. As this customer is using our old version add-in, which's based on 8.2 version Add-in express.

We asked the customer to re-install the add-in on July , it didn't work.

Just want to confirm with you firstly, Does the Add-in express can support the Citrix environment?

Thanks
Roy

Are you saying that the date on that server is incorrect? Should I assume that starting Excel does create/update adxloader.log (and it shows both COM add-in and XLL add-in loading correctly, similar to the above) and this is only the date which is incorrect?

I'd like to know how you install the add-in on that machine. This is why I'd like to have adxregistrator.log. In version 8.2, the default location for adxregistrator.log is {profile}\Documents\Add-in Express\; see the profile of the user who started the installer.

1) That is, the COM add-in loads correctly and this is the XLL add-in that fails?
2) Is the Excel add-in listed on File | Options | Add-ins? If yes, under what heading?
3) Also check if it is shown in the Excel Add-ins dialog. If shown, is it checked? Is it named correctly in that dialog?
4) Can you confirm that there's no other Excel version(s) installed on that machine? If so and if that Excel version(s) was installed recently, you may need to repair all Office versions (in the order of their versions: 2010 before and 2016 then) and reinstall the add-in.
