COM Add-in Shim for Deploying Managed COM Add-ins in Office XP

I'm experiencing the exact same problem. Is there a solution
available? Thanks.


1. Com add-ins versus normal add-ins?

2. Outlook COM Add-In not listed in "COM Add-Ins" menu

Hi all,

I wrote Outlook COM Add-In that adds a custom toolbar to Outlook. It
was working fine, but few days ago, the custom toolbar just
disappeared. Suspecting my COM Add-In was being disabled, I opened
Outlook "Disabled Items" window to find that my COM Add-In was not
listed there. Then, I opened up "COM Add-Ins" window expecting to see
my COM Add-In being unchecked. However, my COM Add-In was not even
listed there! I even tried to register my COM Add-Ins manually by
using "regsvr32.exe", but still couldn't see my COM Add-In in "COM
Add-Ins" window.

I even searched system registry to make sure that COM Add-In object
was properly registered, and found nothing wrong. Can anyone please
tell me in what circumstance, an Outlook COM Add-In stops showing up?
Here is my system spec,

Windows XP/SP1
Outlook XP/SP1
