VSTO Add-in installation some time load properly and sometime not in same machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have started getting a strange behavior to my Add-in installation. I use MSI based project to install my word addin.

    1. When i install my add-in some time it works properly and some time not in same machine. like some changes not updated or from few days, when i install it on a fresh/old machine, addin does not load but as soon as i do repair from control panel->programs , it loads. why it is so?

     i also use installer class in my code.


    I have created two log files for my msi installer, one for the msi which is working and another for which is not working. both files are similar.

    sometimes it works properly and sometimes does not.  

    I'm not able to reproduce actual problem in the installer.

    this problem happened after code check in and checkout from TFS.
