Register AddIn with Shim

How can i register the AddIn for distributing? I use a AddInShim created by the new Version.

When i say "Register ADX Project" the AddInShim will be created and copied into the AddIn Directory and after register deleted, but what happens then? "regsvr32" doesn't create the AddIn in Outlook.

If anyone can help me out, or can lead me to a way how to build a setup without the need of .NET (or Installshield Express) that would be great.

Hi Matthias.

To register ADX based add-in without using MSI installer you should use RegAsm.dll. You can find this dll in .NET Framework SDK.
The command line is
Register: "regasm <add-in dll name>.dll"
Unregister: "regasm /u <add-in dll name>.dll"

The AddInShim will be registered as well. Use regsvr32.dll.
The add-in dll and shim will be placed in the same folder.
