How to properly Install and uninstall WORD 2003 COM Add-ins
Posted on 2009-07-13
I have made a COM Add-in with VB6. This Add-in has what I think is a pretty standard start-up procedure of adding a button to the standard WORD 2003 Commandbar.
I register my .dll with regsvr32 and it works fine. My problem is that if I unregister it, the button is still there in Word. (but does nothing)
I have also made an Add-in for outlook and if I unregister it then the button is also gone when I next open outlook. I am expecting this also to happen with Word but it is not.
I am aware that the add-in has a "connect" entry in the registry under software/microsoft/office/word/add-ins and this entry is gone. But I still get the button.
