Problem wit deploying Outlook Add-in

Hi,

I have my first .net Outlook Add-In (Beta) finished and it runs great on my machine. I wanted to give it some friends for testing
but it fails to run.
It reports a COM-Error when trying to activate it.

So it get's installed correctly, all registry settings are there. I guess it's a missing COM object or wrong version of the .net
framework. How can I figure out what the problem is?

When I try to install it on a fresh Windows Vista or Windows 7 System with just Office 2007 SBE everything works fine.

What Outlook PIA does it reference? Where it fails is the same version of
Outlook deployed? Do you check for PIA's, Framework and Extensibility?

Is this a shared addin or VSTO?

You need to provide complete information if you want help.

Also, see the troubleshooting article and the information about the Fusion
loader at
http://blogs.msdn.com/vsod/archive/2008/04/22/Troubleshooting-com-add-in-load-failures.aspx.
If all else fails that can tell you what's not loading.

Thanks a lot for the Pointer:

@Ken: I didn't know which information is need, otherwise I would have provided it at the first post.

What I don't understand that it runs with two clean installations without any Updates installed.

But I will check everything you mentioned first
