I am still not able to debug my VSTO Word 2003 Add-In on Vista using this Fix. I have Office 2007 installed, and only have Word 2003 installed, and added the install from the O2003PIA.EXE. I'm using Visual Studio 2005 with Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 and Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 Update for Windows Vista. Prior to installing this new fix, I made sure my computer was up-to-date via Microsoft Update.

Nothing is in the list of Disabled Items.

The error message in the COM-AddIns dialog is Load Behavior: Not loaded. A runtime error occurred during the loading of the COM Add-in. The location appears to be indicating the AddinLoader.dll is failing.

Also, I have set the environment variable VSTO_SUPPRESSDISPLAYALERTS to zero, but that has not produced any more details.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you,

Brett

Hi

How we can bootstrap this fix in installer. I don't want to run this fix manually on any computer after installation of my application.


Thanks

I'm not sure if this issue is specific for development of office 2003 add-ins in vista. But I have encoutered issues with my office 2003 add-in when I installed it on vista. The add-in does not load when Word opens. The add-in is working properly on Windows XP. I have developed it in VSTO 2005 SE on an XP machine.

Do you think the issue on this thread has something to do with it If yes, will the fix mentioned here will resolve the issue

Thanks!
