Sample Add-in "Toys" get no more registered properly

Sergey,

I installed the office patch, installed .NET Framework 2, ran the toys add-in and still got the problem. I updated the Word.config.exe file as you directed, placing the file in the Office11 directory and still got the problem. I removed the version 2 .NET Framework and have reverted to VStudio 2003 for now. That seems to be working. I was not able to get them to work in parallel.

I appreciate your help.

Has ADX considered making a wizard for unmanaged C++ add-ins? I am a little disppointed with the performance and am wondering how much faster unmanaged code would load/run.

John, I changed the ADX Toys for Word. Please download it again.

John, did you install the update for Office 2003 after you had installed VS2005? The point is that I use both .NET v.1.1 and 2.0 on my test PC and all works fine (I installed the update after VS2005).

Actually we are not planning to support unmanaged C++.

Of course the unmanaged code works faster than managed one. You can check it if you create a new add-in via the Shared Add-in wizard in VS.

Sergey,

I reinstalled .NET 1.1, .NET 2.0 and Word 2003 & applied all patches. I tried the ADX Toys .NET C# Word Add-in. It worked for both registering through VS and building the Setup following the instructions in Setup.txt.

I'm inclined to think it was a problem with .NET 2.0 Beta dependencies and not due to ADX.

Thanks for your help.

Correction:

The name of the word application as posted above needs to match the .exe file for word on your system. Thus, the file should be winword.exe.config rather than word.exe.config if the .exe. file on your system is winword.exe.
