Hi Team,

I have developed an Excel add-in using add-in express ver "Add-in Express ™ 2009 for .NET". I am using regasm.exe utility to register excel add-in.

It works fine for 32 bit XP but failed on 64 bit windows7 and vista machine.

Thanks,
Amit

Hi Amit,

We recommend using "regsvr32.exe {path}\adxloader.dll" in your case. Note that registering a per-machine add-in (RegisterForAllUsers=true, see module properties) requires administrative permissions and we recommend to have UAC set to its default level and running the command prompt via "Run as Administrator".

Hi,

I have tried this but still same result.

After registering add-in using regasm, I can activate the add-in using following steps:

1. Goto Excel Options>>Add-Ins>>Com Add-Ins>> disable my addin and then click OK.
2. Goto Excel Options>>Add-Ins>>Com Add-Ins>> enable my addin and then click OK.
3. Addin appears in Excel.

Is there some problem with excel or we are missing some setting in excel add-in.

-Amit

Did you follow recommendations below?

If yes, and you still have a problem, try creating a new empty add-in for all users and registering it. If this doesn't work for the new add-in, too, you can send me the new add-in project to the support e-mail address, see {Add-in Express}\readme.txt. Please make sure your e-mail contains a link to this topic.

Hi Amit,

Try excluding MyAddin1.tlb from your setup files. Does this help?

Hi Andrei,

I tried it, but same result. Addin is not shown in Excel menu.

Note: I have also set a sample project to you, please go through that project.

Hi Amit,

It isn't a project, it is a Debug folder. I'd like to look at the project itself.

Try unregsiter the add-in, remove the .tlb file and register the add-in anew.

Hi Andrei,

I have just sent the project to you.

I tried unregister, remove .tlb and then register add-in but same results.

I tried the setup project created with the Add-In project but again same results.

Hi Amit,

Thank you for sending me the project. I've sent you a download link for an intermediate build of version 2009. You need to unregister your add-in, install that build, replace Loader\adxloader.dll in your project with {Add-in Expresss}\Redistributables\adxloader.dll, rebuild your project and register the add-in. If this doesn't help, I will need to look into the log file typically located in [My ]Documents\Add-in Express\adxloader.log.

Hi Andrei,

Thanks for your reply, It worked for me.

We tried it on Win7 64 bit and Win XP. Do let us know can we use this build for distribution or we should wait for formal release of add-in Express.

Thanks a lot for your kind co-operation.

Thanks,
Amit
