  • Hello Sumit,

    What error do you get? Most probably you didn't deploy any required prerequisite with the add-in. How did you deploy it on another machines?

    There are plenty of reasons why an add-in is not loaded by the host application (Outlook in your case).

    First, I'd suggest checking the Trust center settings. The macro security settings can be applied to add-ins as well.

    Second, Microsoft Office applications can disable add-ins that behave unexpectedly. If an application does not load your add-in, the application might have hard disabled or soft disabled your add-in.

    Hard disabling can occur when an add-in causes the application to close unexpectedly. It might also occur on your development computer if you stop the debugger while the Startup event handler in your add-in is executing.

    Soft disabling can occur when an add-in produces an error that does not cause the application to unexpectedly close. For example, an application might soft disable an add-in if it throws an unhandled exception while the Startup event handler is executing.

    When you re-enable a soft-disabled add-in, the application immediately attempts to load the add-in. If the problem that initially caused the application to soft disable the add-in has not been fixed, the application will soft disable the add-in again.
