  • Question

  • Hey,

    I am having some issues. I am running my office add in from Visual Studio, however it doesn't seem to appear anymore.

    I think it's because I accidently removed it from the COM Add-Ins panel.

    Anyway to reset this?

    Thanks

  • Hello Darryl,

    Try to rebuild the add-in in Visual Studio. Did you try to debug the add-in running F5 in VS?

    Is your add-in listed in the Disabled Items list?

    Be aware, Microsoft Office applications can disable add-ins that behave unexpectedly. If an application does not load your add-in when you try to debug it, the application might have hard disabled or soft disabled your add-in.

    Hard disabling can occur when an add-in causes the application to close unexpectedly. It might also occur on your development computer if you stop the debugger while the Startup event handler in your add-in is executing.

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

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

    See How to: Re-enable an Add-in That Has Been Disabled for more information.
