Addin registration with 2 installed excel versions
Hans Jürgen Kosiol



On our system(XP prof. SP2) we have two excel versions installed,
Excel 2003 and Excel 2002.
The Addin project consists of one ADXAddinModul, one ADXRTDServerModule and
one ADXExcelAddinModule(UDF).
After sucessfull installation the situation looks like this:

1.) In Excel 2002 the ADXAddinModul is installed and visible in Excel COM-Addins dialog but the toolbar is not visible. Deactivating and activating the Addin in COM-Addins dialog make the toolbar visible.
2.) In Excel 2002 the ADXExcelAddinModule is installed and works, also the ExcelAddin is visible in the Excel Add-In dialog.
3.) In Excel 2003 the ADXExcelAddinModule is not installed.
4.) RTD works in both Excel versions.

Hi Hans.

If you use more than one versions of MS Office installed on your PC, the COM add-ins can work unpredictablely. So I would suggest you to uninstall both version of Excel and then install one of them.

P.S. Note that we take up your forum requests in the order we receive them.
Besides, it may take us some time to investigate your issue. Please be sure we will let you know as soon as the best possible solution is found.
