How to set the Load Behaviour of com add-in during design time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a com add-in for Word 2010 and I have created a setup for com add-in.When i install it, its load behaviour is set to 3 as default. But i would need to change the default load behaviour of the com add-in as 2. Is there any settings available in VS2008 to set the load behaviour before creating the setup?

    Any help would help me.

    Thanks,

    Krishna.

  • Hi Cindy,

    Thanks for the link you have provided. It was much helpful to see change the load behaviour of add-in. I have another question. Currently the add-in sits in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER". Is there any possibility to change the add-in to sit on "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE".

    Thanks,

    Krishna.

  • Hi Krishna

    I recommend you post the new question in a new message thread. That way, more people will see it :-)

    FWIW, I'm pretty sure this should be possible, but it's not something I've ever done, so I don't have the information at my finger tips.

    When you post the new question, be sure to specify the version of Word/Office involved and, whether this is a COM add-in and NOT a VSTO Add-in (that appears to be the case, but for this question it's very important that the distinction is clear).
