I'm new to developing managed (C#) Add-ins for Excel and new to Visual Studio
2005 and very new to developing Add-ins in VS-2005.
That said I've been trying to put together a little test case COM Add-in.
I've followed the basic recipe as as detailed in ".Net Development for
Microsoft Office" using Visual Studio and have gotten a simple COM add-in to
work in Excel 2003 on my computer without a hitch. When I try to send said
add-in to others it doesn't load up for them (though it should). Furthermore
when they check their Excel instance's COM Add-in dialog, they see that Excel
attempted to load the addin but failed (Location "mscoree.dll", message "Not
Loaded, Runtime error occured during the loading of the COM add-in"). This is
strange though because (1) it works without a hitch on my machine and (2) the
first thing to execute in the program is a MessageBox.Show in the Connect
Given the MessageBox and my previous experience with developing in VS2005
(with C++), my suspiscion is that there is some dll that should be deployed
that isn't done so automatically. Any thoughts on what the problem is? What
am I missing?
