  • Hello,

    Your add-in is soft-disabled.

    Soft disabling can occur when a VSTO Add-in produces an error that does not cause the application to unexpectedly close. For example, an application might soft disable a VSTO Add-in if it throws an unhandled exception while the Startup event handler is executing.

    When you re-enable a soft-disabled VSTO Add-in, the application immediately attempts to load the VSTO Add-in. If the problem that initially caused the application to soft disable the VSTO Add-in has not been fixed, the application will soft disable the VSTO Add-in again.

    For more information, please visit How to: Re-enable a VSTO Add-in That Has Been Disabled

    Please re-load your add-in and check what error it shows at Load Behavior of COM Add-ins dialog. You could also comment out code line by line to narrow down the issue.

    You could follow My Office Addin does not Load! & Troubleshooting COM Add-In load failures to trouble shoot. Besides, to avoid UI error, please follow How to: Show Add-in User Interface Errors to enable show Add-in user interface errors.
