Deploying a Word & Excel Addin for Terminalserver Users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    we have created 2 Addins. We made a one-click install.exe solution which is working on client machines.

    Now we want to deploy those 2 Addins on a Terminalserver (Windows 2008 R2) so every Terminalserver user recieves those Addins.

    How can we archieve this?

    Thx alot for the help !!

  • Hi Hurrikane1982,

    As far I know that Add-in must run on local machine. So there has no work round to deploy add-in on server side and use it on Client side. You can publish your add-in on server side and let client download and setup it.

    Have a good day,

    Tom

  • Hi Hurrikane1982,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    I think I'm not able to catch your mean, what's mean of "Now wwe want to deploy those 2 Addins on a Terminalserver (Windows 2008 R2) so every Terminalserver user recieves those Addins" ? Do you want to share your click-once setup file on the Terminalserver?

    Have a good day,

    Tom

  • Hi Tom,

    short answer on your question yes. I want to install the Addins on the Terminalserver, if possible with the one-click setup so every User which logs on the Terminal server recieves those addins or to explain otherwise that every user is able to use those addins.
