Excel Addin Failed to Load RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created an "Excel Addin" using VS 2005 V8. The module loads and runs perfectly well on my development  machine. I downloaded the "Shared Addin Support Update" recommended to get excel to recognize the addin in the first place. I then properly checked all prerequisites for the setup file before using the VSTO Build Solution.

    The setup.exe file was executed on the target machine. The addin is designed to start when Excel starts. The addin is recognized and available for loading under excel/options/addins. When the box is checked however, the message "Addin Loader failed to initialize" is given.

    After many fruitless hours searching online help I am still unable to get beyond this.  Can anyone help?

    Thanks, -Mike
