Would someone be so kind as to list the steps to add an add-in to the IDE.
Can't find any docs on this.
So far, with your help, I have navigated with a command prompt to the
where regasm is located:
from there I launched regasm with the vendor's .dll as the only parm:
I got a successful registration message.
(note I did not use the /codebase parm as the vendor's .dll evidently is not
So, now I fire up VS.NET, go to Tools | Add-in Manager... |
(but, no entries showing in the Add-in Manager window)
Is there something else to be done?

Under the hood, typing regasm invokes the public static function flaggedQuote:> Is there something else to be done?
For VS .NET 2003, the entry would be a new key under
For VS .NET 2002, the entry would be under
My first thought would be to examine the registry for a CSToVBAddin entry
(likely called something like CSToVBAddin.Connect) in these two places.
Assuming you are running VS .NET 2003 (since you mention the 1.1 Framework),
check to see if an entry was possibly made for 2002 (the vendor may have
only created the addin with the older VS .NET in mind). If so, then you
should contact the vendor for an updated assembly.
Or if you're brave, you can export the key as a .REG file, open it in a text
editor and modify it to create a key in the 2003 location instead, and then
re-import it into the registry. Of course, you would then have to manually
Let me know if this helps.
Has anyone been successful in adding custom built-in functions into
Excel via the .net XP Interop assemblies?
According to MS KB 316723, you have to make sure you build the
deployment project for the Current User, not the machine. I did that.
Also, in the Add-in path for Excel, I added a string called "Automation"
(from a support call to Microsoft) ... but
alas ... no add-in after I install.
Anyone get this to work?
