MS Office COM AddIn: toolbar/button not shown in Office 2010

Last Modified: 2013-10-27
We have a MS Office COM AddIn developed for Office 2003 (VB6 ActiveX dll). The addin creates a toolbar and places a command button on it. Works fine on 2003/2007.

Office 2010 shows the AddIn as loaded, but neither button nor toolbar are created. Command is not shown in Available commands list.
