I just purchased the Add-In-Express Dev package.
I have created a very simple MS Visual Studio 2003 Outlook 2003 addin using add-in-express. It simply creates a button which displays a messagebox when clicked.

Can you give me details on how to deploy it to another machine.
I see (in the MSVS 2003 IDE) where I can build the MyAddinSetup
project. I build the setup and can copy the resulting .msi file to the target PC and install. It seems a second deployment has to be done for the VB portion of the plugin??

It seems simple examples for this should be available on the web site
or should be illustrated in the help .pdf file.

Could you give *detailed instructions* on how to deploy a simple VB.net Outlook 2003 plugin created using Add-In-Express.

Thanks - D.Henderson

Hi Don.

You just need to build the MyAddinSetup project and copy the msi file to another PC. Then you can install it. Of course, .NET Framework should be installed on the target PC.

It seems a second deployment has to be done for the VB portion of the plugin??

What do you mean?

Whoops.
It did install the button. It works. I had to make the button visible. Onward.
