Issue 5: Add-Ins which are built with Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office Second Edition do not work after you install build 31125 of Visual Studio Tools for Office RuntimeAssume that you install Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 or Microsoft Office 2013.

Issue 6: Add-ins that cannot install a ClickOnce update may be disabledAfter you install add-ins through a ClickOnce update, the add-ins may become disabled in a host Office application if the add-ins cannot access the update path. For example, the add-ins cannot find an update path if they try to connect to a network share that is offline, or if they try to access a file path that was moved or deleted.
Note A ClickOnce add-in will do the following if it cannot check for an update:
- Throws an exception to the user (if it is a document-level add-in) or fails silently (if it is an application-level add-in)
- Disables the add-in in the host Office application
- Removes itself from Add or Remove Programs
