hello to belarus,

i have found follow error on my adxloader.log:
----------------------------------------------
Error: The Add-in Express Loader can't resolve the 'stdole, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' assembly. Please check if the assembly exists in the application directory or in the GAC.


befor 14 days the addin works very fine. now i installed the 'AutodeskDesignReview'. this installation brings the 'stdole.dll' version 7.0.9466.1 from 25.02.2008 15:59:16. since this installation my addin does not running.


whats to do?
the 'stdole.dll' is a dependency of my addin-project but it does not will be deployed with my setup. i this the mistake? must i deploy my own 'stdole.dll' from my machine where the addin was compiled?
where i must install this file? in the GAC? in the applicationpath?
must this file been registered or copy-only?

thanks for your tips and tricks.

regards from germany,

Hi Andy.

Actually the stdole.dll assembly should be installed with the .NET Framework. What version of .NET Framework is installed on the problematic PC?
Now please try to add the stdole.dll assembly to the add-in application folder. It should fix the issue.

hello sergey,

its .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
but the addin really works with this framework before i install the "AutodeskDesignReview".

on my test-machine i installed the "AutodeskDesingReview" again for show what components installs the setup.
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable SP1
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable SP1 - x86 9.0.30729.17
- DirectX Runtime Update

ok, i test to deploy the 'stdole.dll' with copy-mode in the applicationpath. i tell you the result.

hi sergey,

so, i put the 'stdole.dll' in the applicationpath of the addin but the addin does not started. also a adxloader.log will not be created.

when it will be created a new adxloader.log?
- when install the addin??
- when start the addin??

The log will be created in both cases. Note that these log versions will contain different info which might be useful to understand what's going on.
