Release Notes

This is intended to resolve install issues that can prevent Office 2007 users from successfully installing and using the add-in.

Possible symptoms include:
  • Install completes, but no new toolbar appears in the Word 2007 Add-ins ribbon tab
  • Install completes and toolbar is created in Word 2007 Add-ins ribbon tab, but toolbar buttons do nothing when clicked.

Also addresses:
  • more focused detection on the Word PIA, rather than requiring the entire suite of Office PIAs.

Known issues:
  1. When the Word PIA (aka ".NET Programmability Support") is already installed by Office, the Setup.exe still doesn't recognize it, and will demand that the Office PIAs redistributable be installed. (Please, just install it for now - it's pretty lightweight, it won't break anything - it's the latest version - and I've been fighting with poor MSFT documentation on this for weeks now).
