Hi, have created a shimmed outlook 2003 add in. When i try to install on production machine, i throw an error saying that shimxxxx.dll failed to register. Then i press continiue, supressing error.

1. Open outlook the add is not visible, but if a manually add the add-in it i wont work, the dll is not registered.

2. Then i start setup again, and make a repair. then auto registering the dll went perfectly.

3. Open outlook the add is still not visible, but if a manually add the add-in it works.

please help

Hi Allan.

I think the problem is in the setup project. What PIAs do you use in the add-in?

I've found the problem,

This was releated to your ealier post on office.dll v 11 excluded from detec dependecies, and added to GAC.

Now it install perfectly, but is is still not loaded in outlook when Outlook starts first time.

I can manually add it, and it works.

How come it is not loaded automaticlally??

Allan, please check the LoadBehavior property of the addinmodule.
It should be set to 'Connected;LoadAtStartup'.

'Connected;LoadAtStartup'.

I noticed that if i uninstall the addin and install it again it works.
but not on the clean machanine.

Hi Allan.

That means you still have some missing assemblies in the setup project.
Could you please send me a screenshot with all folders of the setup project?
