I have several Windows 7 PCs running under Windows 7, with Visual Studio 2015. Several because I have to support various versions of Sage 200. Now these each had V8.??? Installed on them.

I have just upgraded each one to latest build 10.1.4703

But I now dont have the Build >> Register/UnRegister menu option anymore. I guess I should run an UnRegister, and Register after an upgrade.

If start a new project and search for ADX project and start new one the new project has the options.

How do I get the options back in the old VS 2015 projects?

My main PC with Windows 11 and VS2022, and a slightly different project (sage 50) upgrade just fine

Hello Sam,

Reinstall Add-in Express making sure you select all required Visual Studio versions on the corresponding screen of the installer.

On another Windows 7 VM, with VS2015
Uninstalled V8.xxx

So I reinstalled V10.xxx (downloaded this week). VS2015 was the only VS version and was the only selection during installation.

The project still has no option to register the Addin Express project from in the build menu, to excel.

I then did a repair, but still no option. Project Compiles OK. AddinModule.vb seems OK

Hello Sam,

Create a new add-in project. If the Add-in Expires context menu is missing on the new project, close Visual Studio and try this; make sure you start VS from an elevated command prompt:

{path to devenv.exe} /updateconfiguration

If the Add-in Express context menu is missing on your real project only, make sure the project folder contains the Loader folder with three files in it: adxloader.dll, adxloader64.dll, and adxloader.dll.manifest. Note that the manifest file was created by the Add-in Express project wizard and it points to your add-ins assembly.
