Hi,

I am using addin express .net to build a com addin for word xp/2003 in VS 2005.

a- Run the setup created by addin express on target machine
b- it works fine
c- restart / logoff the machine
d- addin stops working

Note:
1- Users connect to a domain server and profiles are stored on the server.
2- I checked in the registry and the entries for the addin disappear after restart/logoff.

Please could you revert asap.

thanks

Hi Mac.

What version of Add-in Express do you use?
Do you register the add-in for the current user only (RegisterForAllUsers = false)?


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,

Version = Add-in Express???? 2007 for Microsoft??? .net
File version for adxloader.dll = 3.4.1868.0

(RegisterForAllUsers = true)

I think, on login the domain server (active directory) populates the registry settings for HKEY_CURRENT_USER on the machine - and hence, the keys created by addin express on installation are wiped out.

thanks

Hi Mac.

Yes, I agree with you. Please try to install the add-in for the current user only.

Hi Sergey,

I tried using (RegisterForAllUsers = true).
But it is not working.

The addin works absolutely fine when I install it - till I logoff or restart the machine.

Any thoughts please.

This is very urgent now.

thanks

Hi Mac.

Please include the 'Shared add-in support update for .NET v2.0' prerequisite to the setup project and rebuild it. Then please use the setup.exe file to install the prerequisite and add-in on the PC.
