Enable IE8 Add-on Programmatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a toolbar using Add-In Express for Internet Explorer and it installs fine, I'm using Wix. The only issue I'm having is I want to enable it after it installs. For some reason its disabled after it installs. If I go into Tools > Manage add-ons > Toolbars and Extensions, I see it in the list and I can enable it but I want to do this programmatically. It's IE8 on Windows XP and Windows 7. I tried Google'n it but with no success. I'm looking for anything that can do it: PowerShell, Registry Keys, .NET program, ANYTHING! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I talked to Add-In Express and they said there is no way to enable it programmatically.
