Outlook 2010 beta does not start addin


C

I'm trying to create an Outlook adding for 2010 beta using VB. The addin
shows up in the list of addins and I get the "Mail Checker addin created" and
the "Mail Checker addin deleted" messages at the appropriate times (see code
below), but I never get any of the messages in the IDTExtensibility2
subroutines. I would guess that this means that Outlook 2010 beta is not
"connecting" to my addin.

I checked all the example code that I could find and I seem to have
everything I need. I've also tried both Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio
2010 beta. Is there something I'm missing? Does Outlook 2010 beta not support
addins yet?

I wll be happy to try any and all suggestions.

Thanks

Are you using a shared addin or a VSTO addin? Your code has the signatures
for both and that's not something that would ever work in any version of
Outlook.

If you are using a shared addin you will need the extensibility interfaces,
if you are using VSTO you would use the ThisAddIn_Startup() and
ThisAddIn_Shutdown() events, VSTO would handle the extensibility interfaces.

You posted the same thing in another group and were told the same thing,
just posting again in a different group won't get you a different answer.

You need to decide which type of addin you are writing. Also post if you are
using 32-bit or 64-bit Office, since addins for one won't run on the other
setup.

Thanks for the insight, Ken. I will see if I can use your observations to
fix my problem.

But just for the record, I did start out trying another group, but I wasn't
sure exactly where to ask this question. The moderator over there recommended
this group - but he did not give me an answer that I ignored.

I think this strongly depends on the add-in you are using, with lookeen whic
is a search tool, there weren't any bigger problems, but I am pretty sure tha
the developpers of your add-in are aware of that and are working on thi
problem, so I wouldn't worry about it.
