BUG: Add-Ins Only Visible to the User Who Installs VB
Article ID: 190212 - View products that this article applies to.

After you install Visual Basic and log on to the machine as a different user (with or without administrator privileges), you cannot see any Add-Ins in the Add-In dialog in Visual Basic.
Visual Basic retrieves available Add-Ins based on the CurrentUser Settings in the Registry. When a user logs on to a machine and launches Visual Basic, Visual Basic determines which Add-ins to load by checking on the CurrentUser keys. Because users who log on to the system have their individual settings, Visual Basic will load Add-Ins differently for different users.
To resolve the issue the Add-Ins need to be registered for each user. There are two possible ways to update the registry with the necessary information:
