The question I asked several month ago at: http://www.add-in-express.com/forum/read.php?FID=5&TID=5672&MID=28100#message28100

at that time I don't have VS2008 yet, right now I have it and upgrade to it, but I could not find "RequiresElevation" in the csproj file, is there any other file I should check?

Thanks.

Hello Jason,

If you use VS 2005, we suggest zipping your installer and providing a readme file in the archive.

Eugene,

I just upgrade to VS 2008, but seems if I upgrade from VS 2005, the vdproj file will not have that setting. Please advise. Thanks.

I found if I import both toolbar project and setup project to vs2008, then the RequiresElevation won't appear in the vdproj file.

So I only import the toolbar project and create the setup project by my self, but after that, I found if I debug it directly, toolbar will appear in IE, but if I install it use the setup file created by setup project, the toolbar won't appear in IE, even check the "Manage Add-on" I could not find it. But it appear in "Add/Remove Programs". So I think I did something wrong with the setup project.

After Compare with the vs2005 and vs2008 setup project, the only difference I found is in "Primary Output from toolbar (Active)", adxregext.exe in vs2008 setup project(I created) is a assembly, but in vs2005 setup project(created by add-in-express project setup wizard) is a file.

Is that the reason? then how to make this to be a file not a assemble, I choose to add this file from "C:\Program Files\Add-in Express\Add-in Express 2008 .NET for Internet Explorer Standard\Redistributables\adxregext.exe", but after add it, it always show type assemble.

If that is not the issue, what is the correct step to set up the setup project. Thanks.

Please have a look at the Custom Actions stage in the MSI installer.

Eugene,

Thanks, so the adxregext.exe is there because of the custom actions. I will try that and get back to you. Thanks a lot for all your helps.
