Hi,
when I try to create a new Project (ADX IE Addon) Visual Studio crashes without any notice.

I found out, that the cause is the file ADXIEUtils.dll, and I tried to repair the installation.
I ran the setup.exe again, chose repair and recieved the following error:
(I translate to english)

Error on registering Module c:\....\Add-in Express 2008 .NET for Internet Explorer Standard\bin\ADXIEUtils.dll HRESULT-1073741674.
Please contact the support.

addition:
I thought perhaps it helps when I re-register the file.
so I ran:

regasm /tlb c:\.....\bin\ADXIEUtils.dll


that returned

RegAsm : error RA0000 : Failed to load 'c:\...\binADXIEUtils.dll' because it is not a valid .NET assembly


any Ideas ?

Hello Frank,

Do you use a user account in which you installed Add-in Express for Internet Explorer?

Hi Frank,

Do you have any records with ADXIEUtils.dll in the Windows registry?

Hi Frank,

Please try to register ADXIEUtils.dll using the following command:

RegSvr32.exe /i ADXIEUtils.dll

Does it help?

I just realized that I looked at the wrong place this afternoon, (I was searching in my host system, not inside the VM where the Tool is installed)... sorry.

there are 3 entries in the registry:
1. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{01955AC8-06...}\1.0\0\win32
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\TypeLib\{019...}\1.0\0\win32
3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windwos\CurrentVerion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-21-1547....

I just re-registered using your command, and still the same entries.

In general the Tool worked fine for months, this appeared first after I increased the harddisk size of the VM from 8 Gb to 10 Gb. May that be part of the problem ?
It shouldn't, because the additional space is appended at the end of the old disk file of the VM.

Hello Frank,

Did it happen after you had changed the size of the hard drive of VM?
