C# Outlook Add In Installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've made an Outlook 2003 add in in Visual Studio 2005 that works just fine when I'm debugging it and using Visual Studio to test it. I try to run the installation file that's produced when I build the solution, and it won't install. Well, the installation appears to work just fine, but when I open up outlook, it won't load my add in. It says "Not loaded. A runtime error occured during the loading of the COM Add-in." If I check the box next to my add in, it doesn't change a thing, as soon as I go back, it's unchecked again. If I try to add the dll file myself, it says " is not a valid Office Add-in." although I assure you I just had it running when I was debugging in Visual Studio. I'm lost about how I can create an installation file for this. If anybody has some tips, it'd be greatly appreciated.
