Hello,

I have Add-In Express .Net installed, version 5.0.2021.2003.
Microsoft Visual Studio .net 2003
Windows XP SP2, US-English

Steps to reproduce:

1. start visual studio
2. create a new project of type ADX COM Add-in
3. (this is the key step) Choose "Primary Interop Assembly" instead of the version neutral ones.

result: Visual Studio experiences a crash while creating the add-in DLL for the project.

Below is a cut and paste of the crash details:

I should also note that this bug happens every time. My work is currently blocked as a result, so I appreciate any timely feedback.

Kind regards,

Hello Mani,

We always recommend installing all Microsoft updates and the latest SP for Windos XP is SP3. Please install it (annd all other updates) and tell me if this solves the issue.

Hi Andrei,

I've updated to SP3, with the latest updates to Windows XP and Office 2007 from the Microsoft Software Update site.

Unfortunately, I am still experiencing this crash. Stack trace is below. Please let me know if there is any way I can help you diagnose the issue, as this remains a high priority for me.

Kind regards,
Mani

Hello Mani,

It looks like you don't have administrative permissions on your PC. Is this correct?

Hello Andrei,

No, that's not correct. The user does have administrative permissions as configured in the account settings.

To be 100% sure, I logged in as another user, that also has admin privileges, and encountered the same crash.

The crash has to do with generating the PIA. I am able to successfully build add-ins using the version-neutral libraries.

Regards,
Mani

Hi Mani.

Is .NET Framework SDK installed on your PC?

The .NET framework SDK was not installed on my machine.

I have now installed the following:

- Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows Server 2008 (this includes the .NET 3.5 SDK)
- Microsoft .NET Framework SDK 2.0

I rebooted the machine after installing the above, just to make sure. Unfortunately, I am still experiencing the same crash. :(

1) Do I need to install the 1.1 SDK as well? The MSDN site says that this is already included with VS.NET 2003
2) VS.NET 2003 is installed on a different drive than Add-In-Express and my .NET libraries. Could this cause the issue?

Regards,
Mani

Hi Mani.

I use the tlbimp.exe tool to generate interops. Please check if the tool works properly on your PC. You can also add interops via the Add References dialog of your project.
