  • Yes of course. If you are writing a managed add-in then you need an eniv (.net 2.0) to execute it.

    You need to copy all the dlls that you reference, to the client m/c. Whether they are PIAs or any other dlls. You can choose to GAC all the dependent dlls.

    Hope this helps

  • Hi,

    Are you asking how to create a setup for your add-in and install on end-user computers?
    Or are you trying to ask something in particular to VS installations issues?

    If it is the former, then here is what you need to do

    1)  Add Setup type of poject to your solution
    2)  Right-click on your setup project and say Add - Project Output
    3)  In the drop-down, select your add-in project and in the selection box under it select Primary Output.
    4)  Chk if you need to package any updates like KB908002. Do as instructed in the KB articles
    5)  Build and your setup is ready. You just need to run on end-user m/c which have .net 2.0 but not necessarily VS

    Hope this helps

  • Thank you. I ment creating a setup for my add-in.

    So, then I understand that the end-user computer must have .net 2.0 installed.

    What about the PIA's?

    Thanks for helping me :)
