VSTO 4.0 With Roaming Profiles RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are VSTO 4.0 add-ins supported on a All Users Install with Roaming Profiles?

    Occasionally when trying to call Save on a word document from the Add-in, Word will hang and never recover.  I am forced to kill the process, and then when i open word the next time, it asks if i want to disable my add-in.  This only seems to happen with an All Users Install and being logged in with a roaming profile.

  • try to break into debugger when this hang happens, you can use windbg with sos for that. No need to install anything, just copy windbg folder to that machine. If that is too heavy, you can try out processexplorer from MS, it has abilioty to display threads and callstacks with .net code - see where it really hangs and waits for something
