Hi Michael,

Based on the information in the log, adxregistrator.exe starts without privileges. If the add-in is installed in Program Files, adxregistrator should be run with the administrative privileges.

I think after changin my manifest to below the installer installs my files, but isn't registering the add-in since I have no adxlog after the installer runs. I am able to manually install the com add-in from within excel from the add-in screen.

Any suggestions for where to look.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
<assemblyIdentity name="FUNDEZ14.XL, PublicKeyToken=52074e1d8ddc40ee" />
<loaderSettings generateLogFile="true" privileges="admin" />
</configuration>

Hi Michael,

Please set the RegisterForAllUsers property of the AddinModule to true, rebuild the add-in project and re-create the setup project again via the Add-in Express wizard. The Add-in Express Setup Project wizard will generate the correct installer. Please run setup.exe to install the add-in. Let me know if the issue still exists.
