Enable a Custom MS Word Com Addin when .xa file extension is opened

Hey All,

I have a little problem. We have a  custom Com Add in that must be loaded in MS Word so as it is able to launch .xa files from another application for editing.
The problem is that this add in is now causing problems when another application launches certain types of word documents.

What im wondering is, is there a way for me to set that this .xa com add in is only loaded when the .xa file is launched???

The OP mentions "another application" - it is not clear how many other applications are being used but I suspect it is only 1 other application?  Is that correct?

Is this other application always launching the files into word or can it be used to view the word documents - e.g. something like open office?
