Deploying outlook 2003 add-in using VSTO SE


G

Guest

Hello,
I have developed an outlook add-in (C#) with following configuration:
Visual studio 2005
Outlook 2003
VSTO SE

The add-in works fine on dev machine. The project creates a setup package
for deployment to other machines. When I install this package, the add-in
does not load in outlook. Some troubleshooting I did is as follows:
* Ensured that all the dependent assemblies are part of the package
* Installed VSTO runtime on the target machine
* User .Net explorer to find out dependency issues and found none.
Is there any way to find out what is wrong here?

Thanks.

Did you set security on the code assembly on the target machine using the
SetSecurity project and walkthroughs? You need to do that to get the code to
run on a deployment machine or to set up the security using CASPOL or some
other method. See the deployment walkthroughs for VSTO 2005 SE at

As ken mentioned above - the info in the links is exactly what you
want to do.

To add to what he said -
As a check - on your deployment machine - see the registry entry for
LoadBehavior. If the SetSecurity is not done - the plugin will have
value 2 - which means it is disabled. it should be 3 in order for it
to work.

This value would be under Hkey_Local_users or Hkey_localmachine
depending on where u are deploying it

thanks
