I have trouble installing Addin Express 2007 for VSTO. I always get the message

"The AddinExpress.OL.VSTO.2005.dll file is not found. May be you are using the Registration Key of another product."

during the installation.

OS: Vista Enterprise
Office: 2007 Professional

I have tried to follow these instructions:
It didn't work either.

Does anybody have an idea what the problem might be?
Thanks a lot.
