Word shared add-in not loading (solved) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I try to deploy a very simple shared add-in (message box popup) for Word 2003 to a test machine that is not my development machine. I am using the automatically generated Setup Project with absolutely nothing changed to it.

    - On the dev machine (VS2005) : the popup shows up correctly.
    - On the text machine : I have installed the add-in using the automatically generated Setup Project, but nothing happens in Word. The add-in is not in the disabled items of Word not in the Comm add-ins. All required registry keys are present. Office 2003 SP2, Framework .NET 2.0, Office 2003 PIA, VSTO redist libs are installed.

    Please help !

    For the Office programs, they have the security permissions set to High by default. This means that you can load Add-ins only if they have been signed with an Authenticode signature. If you have not signed your code, then you will need to adjust the permissions to allow your Add-in to run.

  • Thank you for your answer.

    I managed to run my addin by :
    - Signing the code
    - Referecing Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.dll + Extensibility.dll in the setup project
    - Installing the update KB908002
