registering dll using regasm only works for admin, adding manually for a local user to Word does not work

Nov 27, 2016 at 8:16 PM
I am using NetOffice and it is an awesome product!

I have a problem getting my office add-in to work for a local user. It all works fine when using regasm.exe as administrator. The office-add-in cannot be registered by a local users using RegAsm.exe.

When I try to add the add-in in Word manually for the local user (via COM Add-ins) I get this message: MyOfficeAddin.dll is not a valid Office Add-in.

Does anyone has an idea or a solution? Thanks!

I think I have had this or something like it before. I'm sorry I can be sure, and worst I can remember what I did to solve the issue. one suggestion would be to try playing around with the "com visible", settings for the project, I think this is sometime a factor - sorry not a very good answer.
