I cannot get my outlook add-in to register. It appears to install correctly, but is not in the Outlook Options Add-ins.
I have had this outlook Add-in working, made a few changes, uninstalled it and tried to reinstall it.

Also could not get it register and run for debugging. (Which i have done in the past).

Hello Chris,

The log reports a successful registration. Maybe, the add-in is under a different header, not under Active Application Add-ins.

Also, you can check if all registry keys required for an add-in are created; check section Locating COM add-ins in the registry; see the PDF file in the folder {Add-in Express}\Docs on your development PC.

All 3 of the add-in locations (active/Inactive and disabled) do not show the add-in. I've read through the PDF file and cannot figure out why the add-in will not install and still cannot register it for debugging.

I've installed and uninstalled the add-in, then reinstalled it. It does not show up...

For the debugging of the add-in, i've unregisterred and re-registered it. (With the add-in uninstalled).

And when i was working on it on Friday, It was working on the same machine. Both as debug and as a full install. Then for some reason, it stopped working.

Hello Chris,

Is the add-in listed in File | Info | Slow and Disabled COM Add-ins? Is adxloader.log created/updated when you start Outlook?

The adxregistrator.log above describes installing the add-in to C:\Program Files\MiniSoft, Inc\ARCSOutlookAddIn\. Among other files, the following ones are required:
- adxloader.dll
- adxloader64.dll
- adxloader.dll.manifest

Can it be that you've registered the add-in and installed it at the same time? If so, uninstall the add-in, unregister it (choose every available configuration and unregister the add-in), then install it and see if it works.

It does not show in Outlook Add-in Options screen or the COM Add-ins screen.

The folder listed by you contains all 3 of the files.

I did an unistall, then i unregistered the app that i used for debugging. Then I reinstalled it, still no luck.

There is an adxregistrator.log that is created on the install, but no adxloader.log when outlook is started.

Hello Chris,

File | Options | Trust Center | Trust Center Settings | Macro Settings. If 'Apply macro security settings' is selected, and 'Notifications for digitally signed macros, all other macros disabled' is selected, your add-in must be digitally signed.

Are these selected?

Hello Chris,

I would like to access your PC remotely within the next 20 minutes. Is this possible? If yes, I suggest using TeamViewer; in this case you'll need to send me your session ID and password.
