Here's an obscure setting that might be what you need:

Under Office button, Word Options, Trust Center, Trust Center Settings, use
Add New Location to enter the directory that your add-in is located in.

Add-ins in Word 2007

Post by Tom Smit » Fri, 21 Mar 2008 06:35:15

Word 2007 under Win XP.

I want to use an add-in for a Brother label printer. I have twice succeeded
(or so I thought) in getting the Add-In added. But when I close and then
re-open Word, it's gone, again. I'm missing a step, I'm sure, but I can't
quite suss out what I'm supposed to be doing to make the add-in 'permanent.'
Any help?

Thx, as always. Tom

Where is the add-in located and how did you add it? Is it in a Startup
folder or did you manually add it using the Templates and Add-ins dialog
box? If the latter then Word will not automatically load the add-in each
time Word starts. It needs to be in a Startup folder instead.

This would only allow any macros in the add-in to automatically run - it
will not automatically load the add-in each time Word starts.

Thanks to all for advice and suggestions. I will fiddle with it some more.
The fact of the matter is I'm not quite sure where the program got copied
when I ran the Brother software. I'll have to go back and be a little more
careful.

But thanks, as always, for the help.
