We are building a com add-in for Word and Outlook in .NET 2003.  We are starting with the wizard and uncheck all the applications except Word and Outlook.  It works find with Outlook, but will not work with Word.  It looks like the registry keys are being added also.
Any insight would be great

    >> It works find with Outlook, but will not work with Word.

    Spell out what you mean by 'will not work with Word.' Give us lots of detail. Assume nothing.

    I placed a bunch of msgboxes in the OnConnection, OnStartup functions.  When I open Outlook, my msgboxes appear, When Word opens, they do not.  So it's like Word doesn't recognize that it's supposed to run the addin

    Accepted Solution

    a) What version of Word?
    b) Is the add-in listed in Word (Tools -> Templates and Add-Ins)? Does it work if you add it there?
    c) What is the macro security level (Tools -> Macro -> Security)? Does it work if you lower it to Low Security?
