Problems installing Addin Express

Hello support team,

I've installed Add-in Express (for Microsoft Office and .NET, V. 9.5.4661) and Visual Studio 2019 Professional (also 2022 Professional) on my computer. Everything worked fine.
Now I uninstalled Addin Express for installing Release 10.0.4700 but I recieved the following message (i translated to english):
The method "execute" in type "AddinExpress.Wizard.ADXWizard" of the assembly "AddinExpress.Wizard, Version 10.0.4700.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4416dd98f0861965" has no implementation.
After that I got this message:
There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support package personnel or package vendor.

After that I tried to install the old version (I had installed before) but now I recieve this message:
The type "AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule" of the assembly "Installer.2005, Version=9.5.4661.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4416dd98f0861965" could not be loaded.

So at the moment I can't install any Addin Express version.

I tried the following things:
- starting setup as an administrator
- starting cmd as an administrator and executing 'sfc /scannow'
- rebooting computer
- check for Windows Updates
- executing Windows Trouble Shooter
- uninstalled Visual Studio 2022 professional

Nothing worked for me. At the moment I have no Addin Express installed on my computer. Can you help me getting one of the two versions installed?

Greetings,

Lydia

Hello Lydia,

It looks like uninstalling Add-in Express leaves something in GAC / installation folder. Clear the folder and remove it. As to GAC, remove all Add-in Express assemblies using the gacutil.exe utility from the .NET Framework SDK. The command line is: gacutil.exe /uf {assembly name without ".DLL"}.

You can read more about the gacutil.exe utility in MSDN at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/tools/gacutil-exe-gac-tool

Please let me know if this solves the issue, I'm monitoring this thread.

Hello Andrej,

thanks for your quick reply. You helped me a lot.
I was able to install the older version of Add-in Express after emptying and deleting the installation folder. I didn't try the newer version again yet. Having the older version is fine for me for now. I will try install the new version in the next few days.

Kind regards
Lydia

Hello Lydia,

Do you have VS 2022 Preview installed now?

Did you install it earlier?

Hi Andrej,

I had Visual Studio 2022 Professional installed a few weeks ago, but uninstalled it today after the installation problem occurred. At the moment I have only VS 2019 installed.


Kind regards
Lydia

Hello Andrei,

Just wanted to let you know that I'm experiencing the same issue. I have both Visual Studio 2019 and 2022 installed on Windows 11.

This is the error I'm getting:
Method 'Execute' in type 'AddinExpress.Wizard.ADXWizard' from assembly 'AddinExpress.Wizard, Version=10.0.4700.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4416dd98f0861965' does not have an implementation.

In the installer log I see this:
Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action _1B975689_66DE_4AE8_80B8_BB83E7C6A1E2, location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Add-in Express\Add-in Express for .NET\Bin\Installer.2005.exe, command: Install "C:\Program Files (x86)\Add-in Express\Add-in Express for .NET\\" "" "" "" "" "1" "1"

Just installing for VS 2019 helps

Hello Alexander,

Could you please check if installing Visual Studio 2019 SDK helps; see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/extensibility/installing-the-visual-studio-sdk?view=vs-2019.

Hello,

I had the same problem installing the latest version.

I have VS2019 and VS2022 installed.

I got it working after doing the following (not sure what did solve the problem...):

- I manually deleted the AddinExpress installation folder.
- I ran gacutil /u on all AddinExpress assemblies in the GAC (they can be listed with gacutil /l).
- I used Everything (https://www.voidtools.com/downloads/) to find all the files and folders named AddinExpress on my machine, then deleted the folders remaining in the GAC physical storage (they were all empty but I figured it wouldn't hurt) (Deleted folders: https://imgur.com/a/EHhtIgr)
- I rebooted
- I started the installer, this time checking installation only for VS 2022
- It worked!
