Greetings and Salutations :-)
I have an excel addin that only installs with a user as an admin, its a legacy application that is wrapped in an exe that spawns an msi during setup.
The excel addin wont load under a non-admin user, I can however add it manually, not ideal as we want to deploy to multiple machines.
I was curious about using Active Setup for the excel addin.....I was also looking at registry propagation and loading the .xlam and .xla files into the XLSTART folder, (that caused problems with installation)
Looking for suggestions on adding the excel addin for all the users on a machine.
We have a pretty locked down environment....and get these VSTO addins quite freqently.
Thank You

The files themselves will still need to be installed in an admin context, obviously. See Captain Planet's excellent article for how to handle the rest.
