Deploy an Office 2007 AddIn for multiple Users on a Windows Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    We have the problem, that we will deploy an Excel 2007 AddIn on a Windows Server 2008 R2. Additionally the addIn has to be deployed for multiple users, because the server is used as a terminal server. The installation for multiple users is a problem for this add-ins (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/vsto/archive/2010/03/08/deploying-your-vsto-add-ins-to-all-users-saurabh-bhatia.aspx). To deploy an Excel 2007 add-in for multiple users it is necessary to install a hotfix (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976477). The problem is now, that this hotfix doesn't work on a windows server 2008 R2. If we install the hotfix, no office application works (word, excel, ...). When you start an office application, it crashes immediatly.

    Is there another hotfix for windows server 2008 R2 or maybe another workaround to deploy the addIn in that way?

    Taking another OS is no option. Also another Office Version is not possible.
