Windows installer for office add in RRS feed

  • Question

  •  created s set up project using this link.

    The addin was not getting installed. When I tried to add it through add ins in excel it said "xxx is not a valid office addin".

    This error is because the dll is not strong named and not in GAC. So I enabled adding the dll in GAC in the set up project using this link

    I am still not able to see the add in when I run the set up. and when I forcibly tried to add it, got the same error.

    Any idea whats going wrong? Thanks in advance!
