How to install the add-in for several users

Your company purchased several licenses of the add-in. Now you, as administrator, need to install the software for your end-users and naturally you want to do this quickly and smoothly.
All you need is the add-in's setup file (Download) and some folder on your network drive accessible by all users for which the add-in should be installed.
A few bits of helpful information
  1. The setup files of all our add-ins are Windows installer packages (.MSI) and they support all Windows Installer command-line options.
  2. The add-in is installed only for the current user account, not for all users of the system.
  3. The license is per user, not per machine. You can install the add-in on 3 machines of the same user.
  4. Add-ins are installed into the user's personal folder, administrative or power-user permissions are not required.
  5. Our add-ins are compatible with all personal and server operating systems starting with version 2000.
  6. To track installations we use the online activation system on our activation server. The activation key is bound to the Hardware ID, which is a combination of hardware serial numbers.
  7. Single Terminal Server. Our add-ins work fine.
  8. A group of Terminal Servers with load balancing, a user has a roaming profile. Since activation is bound to the Hardware ID, it is lost every time the user switches to a new server. The good news is that it is solvable :-), please contact us. 
How to create a network image for subsequent installation by end-users
As an example, we are going to install the Add-ins Collection for Excel.
  1. Download the latest version of the setup file (Download)
  2. Unpack the downloaded setup file to any folder.
  3. Run the setup in order to create a network image. To do this, enter the following string into the command line:
    msiexec /a excel-addins-collection.msi
  4. This will run the Setup wizard. On step 3 called "Installation settings", browse for a network folder in which a network image will be created. Enter your Registration name and Registration key in the corresponding fields. It should look similar to this: 
    Create a network image: Installation settings
  5. Finish the process and wait until the network image is created.
  6. You can create a network image silently. If you dislike working with wizards and want to save some more time, you can specify the setup folder and license info in the command line when running the setup file. Here are the command-line options (switches):
    TARGETDIR="setup folder" REGISTRATIONNAME="" and REGISTRATIONKEY="" - your license information.
    Here is how it looks in our example:
    msiexec /a excel-addins-collection.msi TARGETDIR="Z:_Setups\Ablebits Add-ins Collection for Excel" REGISTRATIONNAME="Add-in Express Ltd." REGISTRATIONKEY="EACL2-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX"
    In this case the wizard will not disturb you; it will go unnoticeable and create a network image in the specified folder silently.
How to deploy the add-in to end-users
1. If your users work in a network with a domain structure based on Microsoft Windows Server, you can assign the add-in to a specific user(s) using Group Policy. Please see the following links for detailed instructions:
How to use Group Policy to remotely install software in Windows Server 2003 and in Windows Server 2008 -
Assign software to a specific group by using Group Policy in Windows Server 2000
We recommend choosing "Assign software" as a "Deployment type". In this mode the add-in will be installed for the users automatically next time they login to the domain.
2. Your users can also install the add-in themselves from the network image created by you, provided they have the rights to install software. The network image contains all the necessary registration information.
How to activate the add-in
At the first start of an Office application after the add-in installation, the add-in will attempt to get activated in the silent mode. If activation is successful, the "About" window with license information will be displayed to the user:
Successful Activation
Error during automatic activation
An error may occur if your firewall blocks the attempts of the add-in activation module to connect to our activation server (
  1. Add a rule for to your firewall settings , or
  2. Ask your users to activate the add-in manually. To do this, they need to click the key icon at the bottom of the add-in's window or pane, choose "Manual Activation" and click the Go button on the next step. The page containing the activation code will open in their browser. They need to copy it and paste into the "Activation code" field, then click Next.
