Starting a COM addin


Gordon Garnsey

I have a COM addin in an Excel environment.
It loads a new button (and assosciated app) when excel
opens and thats fine if I open from a shortcut on the
quickstart bar.
But if I start by double clicking an excel file in the
explorer window I get the Explorer window writing over my
application, either in full colour or as a grey mask. This
usually happens as forms are being used in the
I "SetParentToExcel" for my forms and suspect it is trying
to "set parent to Explorer" in the case where we start
from explorer.
Has anyone got any thoughts on this?
