FirstExcelAddIn Walkthrough: Build -> Clean Solution doesn't remove/disable Add In RRS feed

  • Question

  • I worked through the FirstExcelAddin example and got to the point where the text "This text was added by using code" was added each time I saved an Excel file.  However, when I tried to disable/remove the add in by executing 'Build -> Clean Solution in my VS2017 CE solution, nothing happened. The above text still gets added to each Excel spreadsheet when I save it.

    Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here?

    TIA,

    Frank

  • I can manually remove 'FirstExcelAddin' from the following registry key:

    Computer\HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2999943238-1021223453-588265192-1003\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Excel\AddInLoadTimes

    And this will prevent the code from loading/running.  However, I believe that is what the Build->Clean Solution operation is supposed to do
