Hi

I have a finished tested project which I am now rolling out to a test group of users the installation works fine, files copied etc but the add-in is never registered in Outlook and toolbar does not appear,

The project works fine on my two machines with add-in express installed and VS2003 installed.

I am installing onto clients with W2K SP4 with office 2003 where the problem exists

Anyone seen this ?

Hi Matt.

Is AddinExpress.MSO.dll assembly registered on the target PC during the installation?

Hi Matt.

As is well known, the ADX Wizard automatically generates the Setup project for each add-in. You shouldn't copy and register the AddinExpress.MSO.dll manually. The Setup project registers this dll itself on the target PC. If an add-in was registered successfully you should see the AddinExpress.MSO.dll assembly in the GAC.

Resolved all the installation issues. I am now suffering another problem. In VS2003 I am getting the error:

The designer could not be shown for this file because none of the classes within it can be designed. The designer inspected the following classes in the file:

AddinModule --- The designer for base class 'AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule' is not installed.

I get a big red cross on the screen when double clicking on addinModule.vb

Any ideas ?

I have uninstalled and re-installed add-in express 2.2.1750.29186 etc

:D Fixed, I had add-in express reference copy local TRUE which causes the above error.

Hi Matt.

Yes, it could be the reason of the error.

Hi

I am getting the same problem again not being able to open the designer.

The designer could not be shown for this file because none of the classes within it can be designed. The designer inspected the following classes in the file:

AddinModule --- The designer for base class 'AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule' is not installed.

I get a big red cross on the screen when double clicking on addinModule.vb


Have you any other ideas on what is causing this. I have copy local off on references.

thx

Matt

I've turned off Copy Local for all references now and that appears to have let me back into the designer.
