Thank Sergey,

That explains it because I'm under impression that IEModule always called before toolbar and explorer bar. I need your opinion for Add-in 2011

1. What minimum NET framework version (excluding NET 2.0) that works well with Add-in 2011, we do not want to force our customer to upgrade NET framework if they do not have to.

2. For 64 bits system, where should we deploy our dll files? Should it be under C:\Program Files or C:\Program File (x86). Most of users these day get used to C:\Program Files so they complaint if we deploy to C:\Program File (x86), but 64 bit OSs defined C:\Program File (x86) is for 32 bits program (backward compatible), i.e. 32 bits IE browser.

Thanks,
Phuong

Hi Phuong,

1. Add-in Express 2011 for IE supports .NET v2.0 and above.
2. We recommend to install Add-in Express based add-ons to 'C:\Program File (x86)' as the default installer created in visual Studio is compiled for the 'x86' platform. However the user can choose any target directory which is accessible for him.

Thank Sergey,

It looks like our add-on is not ready for 64 bits IE browser yet. Is there a way I can just register for 32 bits IE only on (64 bits OSs). I tried to set target to x86 but Add-in express always load in both 32 and 64 bits IEs.

Regards,
Phuong

Hi Phuong.

Add-in Express based add-ons are ready for both platforms automatically. You don't need to care about it because you develop your code in C# .NET. Please leave the TargetPlatform of the setup as 'x86'. There is not a possibility to restrict the registration for x86 only.

Thanks Sergey,

I noticed that IE9 has a new feature that it will warn you about your add-on if your add-on take more than 20 seconds to load (by default) and kept asking you to turn off the add-on. Is there anything we need to do to improve the load time less than 20 seconds, my add-on has both Toolbar and Sidebar.

Best Regards,
Phuong

Hi Phuong.

This issue was fixed in the latest version of Add-in Express 2011 for IE. Probably you still use the old version of the loader. Please check it.
