Hi,

We are using Add-in-Express 2007 with adxloader.dll(generated setup routine from Add-in-Express) to register the Add-In for excel. Our users have more than one excel installed on their systems and we need to install the add-in only for one specific excel version(2003).
How can we do this?

Best regards,
Hans Jürgen Kosiol

Hi Hans.

Were all versions of Excel application installed under the same user's account? If so, I am afraid it is not possible to install the add-in for a specific Excel version. The point is that all versions of Excel application share the same registry entries in the 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel' key.


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.

Hi Sergey,

Yes and No... The add-in is installed on a citrix server for all users, but each user get a seperate windows account.
So the add-in is installed for the default user and after first login on the server a separte account based on default user account is created.
Now we think, if we can register the add-in for a specific excel version in the default user profile all problems will be solved.

Best regards,
Jürgen

Jürgen, as I mentioned above, the add-in is registered in the system registry regardless the number of Excel versions installed.
