VB.Net Shared Add-In for Word2000 event not firing

Hello,
   I have created a VB.Net Shared Add-In for Word2000 which works great on Word2000 on my machine (where it was developed). It also works on a few other machines in my office. However, it will not work on all machines that I install it on. It seems to be any machine that has Visual Studio installed it will work on, but if VS is not installed it does not work.
Any Ideas?
Thanks!

This is a pain in the ARSE with .net  A add-in that takes 15 minutes to write can take hours to days to deployed and running.  If anyone has an easy way I'd love to here it.

You need to have all the correct libraries and runtimes and .net framework version loaded on the machines and the have to add the add-in to the GAC.

I have narrowed it down to it only works on machines that have Office 2007 installed on them. Then it works in all versions of Word. Not every machine will have 2007 installed - so how do it get it to work on machines that don't have 2007 installed. It must be some dll that is installed with 2007 that is needed. Any ideas how I would isolate this and register it on it's own???

I found the solution. It is that the Extensibility.dll needs to be in the same folder as the add-in .dll that you have created.
This works for me!

I had to do a lot of digging around to find the solution, but thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
