Add-in deployment problem

Hi,

I made an Outlook add-in. I created setup files and deployed it to another computer. I login as USER1 and installed add-in and used CASPOL to set permission to the user to run. It worked well.

I then log out and log in as USER2. Open the Outlook, it didn't work. I then used CASPOL to assign permission to USER2 to run the add-in. It still didn't work.

My question is: how can I install add-in once and set the security in one go, then every user on this computer can use my add-in? Should I do anything on setup project?

Thanks,

Danny Huang

Login to where as user1 and user2? If these are different Windows logins

then each user would have a different HKCU hive of the registry. If your

addin was registered in HKCU, which I assume it was since you only need to

fool with CASPOL for VSTO addins which are registered in HKCU, that's the

reason it isn't working for user2.

You'd need to register in HKCU for each user on that computer, or to

register in HKLM which would allow use for all users. However, if this

really is a VSTO addin registration in HKLM is a problem. For information on

that see the article here

http://blogs.msdn.com/mshneer/archive/2007/09/04/deploying-your-vsto-add-in-to-all-users-part-i.aspx

in Misha's blog.

In the future please post all relevant information, such as Outlook versions

to be supported and the version you developed on, language used and

platform, Windows version, and whether it's VSTO or a shared addin or

whatever.

If this is a VSTO addin, which I suspect but you didn't confirm, make sure

you read Misha's blog articles before attempting to register a VSTO addin in

HKLM. Normally Outlook will refuse to load such an addin when registered

there.
