Hi Adam.

You will need to rebuild the add-in after you have installed the latest ADX version.
As for .NET Framework 2.0, you can try to remove all registry entries with the 'RuntimeVersion = 2.0.50727' manually. This is not a good solution but probably it will help and your clients will not have to reinstall the PC.

One more idea. Could you copy the Outlook.exe.config file to the Office installation folder? This config will force Outlook to use .NET 1.1 only.
The content of the config file is shown below:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
<startup>
<supportedRuntime version="v1.1.4322"/>
<supportedRuntime version="v1.0.3705"/>
</startup>
</configuration>

Thank you. I did try the Outlook.exe.config file but it did not appear to help on the machine in question.

Im going to try the newer version and I will report back.

No didnt help.

Have tried everything, the outlook.exe.config file, updated to latest version of ADX, rebuilt the setup, searched the registry for 'RuntimeVersion = 2.0.50727' (nothing found), installed/reinstalled and still no add-in will show.

I guess its just one to put down to Outlook not behaving as it should - unless you have any other ideas?

Hi Adam.

Could you create a new "standard" simple add-in by using the 'Shared Add-in' wizard in VS 2003? Please test it on the PCs to make sure that the problem is not in the ADX based add-in.
