Isn't it possible to make combo boxes non-temporary?
I'm asking this because I would like to make a combo box visible or invisible depending on the previous state, and in the AddInModule this property seems to be read-only.

In addition, I would like to avoid temporary controls since we encountered a very strange behavior: If the controls (e.g. toolbar with all its items) of the Excel plug-in are temporary, when opening an Excel attachment from Outlook for the first time after machine restart, there is an error message of "The system cannot find the file specified". When opening the attachment again it works fine.
Do you have an idea what might cause it?

Hi Nir.

To make combo boxes not-temporary you just need to set the Temporary property of your command bar to false.

I don't think that the problem concerns the Excel toolbar. I have just tested this situation. All works fine. So please review the add-in code.
