Hi all again!
I'm busy, you see :)
Now I've got a deal with an Excel Toolbar and it's creation.
This Application (repackaged) creates an Excel toolbar, but the repackager only recognizes the change made in the Excel11.xlb (toolbar config file in userprofile).
The problem is :
- I can overwrite the target system's Excel11.xlb with this one in the new package, but doing that means deleting any previos configuration of each user. So I must find an alternative way to create the toolbar (and disable it) with NO .XLA FILE (sorry but there's no .xla file).

And that's it!

Can you view the file structure of .xlb file?
I know Client Access uses .ini file structures extensively to store settings - you may design your vector of attack around that...

Hi Revizor,
The .xlb file structure is not viewable for me, and the .ini file the package has is a setup.ini that doesn't have any entry for the toolbar...

Hi Kris,
the only SW which can edit the xlb-file is this one (afaik):
Unfortunately, the website is only in german (maybe bablefish is a help...)
