Hi Experts,

I just deployed my addin application and it is working fine for all the users except windows 7 64bit.

In the Event viewer it is showing following message

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\abc\xyz\adxloader.dll.Manifest".Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Program Files (x86)\abc\xyz\adxloader.dll.Manifest" on line 2. The manifest file root element must be assembly.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Amit,

Do you have Offiec 2010 64-bit on that machine? If so, it isn't supported currently.

If this isn't the case, then how do you register the add-in? if you use regsvr32, then the correct version of it is located in .\Windows\SysWOW64. The correct cmd.exe is located in the same folder.

Does this help?

No, I have Office 2007 on that machine (windows7 64bit).

I am using regasm to register COM Add-in on the target machine, it is working fine for all the other machines (XP, Vista etc).

Am I doing something wrong?
Please help me as it is very crucial for me.

Thanks
Amit

Hi Amit.

Please try to use the following command line to register the add-in:
.\Windows\SysWOW64\regsvr32.exe "<the full path to the loader>\adxloader.dll"

We have mostly Windows 7 x64 computers now and our Add-In Express for .NET Outlook 2007 addin is installing and working fine on those.
But we developed it on a Windows Server 2003 x86 on Visual Studio 2008. I don't know if that makes a difference.

Hi Carlos,

This doesn't make a difference if you register/unregister the add-in using the custom actions provided by Add-in Express; if you use regsvr32 then you must use its 32-bit version when registering/unregistering 32-bit add-ins. Office 2000-2007 is 32-bit and add-ins for these Office versions are 32-bit.

Hi Team,

Is there any difference between regasm and regsvr32?

Regards,

Hi Amit,

As far as I know, using regasm to register the add-in requires administratice permissions. Therefore, you can use regasm to register a per-machine (HKLM) add-in; to register a per-user (HKCU) add-in you must use regsvr32.

But we want to install it on the machine level not on the user level.

Hello Amit,

But we want to install it on the machine level not on the user level.


In that case you need to use the regsvr32 utility.
