Hi there,
I had an excel plugin(abc.xll) which needs to run along with excel. Installation part works fine. When uninstalled all the files get removed and is fine till now.

But when I try opening excel, I am getting the error - that the C:Program Files/abc/abc.xll can not be found, please verify the path, as it may be changed or deleted. I am wondering how come even after cleaning up registry entries, the add-in tries to load. Also, when I go to Microsoft Office button -> Excel Options -> Add-ins -> Com Add-ins, I can see my add-in entry still there.

Please suggest me how to remove the addin from Microsoft Office button -> Excel Options -> Add-ins -> Com Add-ins. It needs to be removed while uninstall itself.

Charlie.

How are you adding the add-in? Via a Custom Action? If so, you should (as with any CA) have created a "sister" CA which is run on uninstall, to un-do whatever the installing CA does.

If you're using the 'Open' registry entries: don't. If you see how those entries are named when an add-in is added, you should be able to work out why it's the wrong way.

Search AppDeploy for a couple of scripts to use in a CA for adding and removing add-ins.

Ya it uses the "OPEN" Key method and specifies the path in which it is placed. I tried all my possible ways. No luck.
