Consider this tip if the barcode add-in was installed but fails to load (= not visible) in Word 2007 or 2010 on Windows XP.
Most likely you need to install the Download Primary Interop Assemblies (PIA) manually. These assemblies can be downloaded as an extra package from Microsoft:
Verify if you have installed the PIA package, see FAQ above.
You need Service Pack 3 to be installed. You can download this service pack from Microsoft:
In several cases a new installation combined with cleaning the VSTO cache may be required. The cache cleaning script/tool can be downloaded here. Uninstall, execute the cache cleaning, then install again. Don't enable the "All Users" option with Office 2007.
After updating your Office installation you need to re-activate the Add-In: How to: Re-enable an Add-in That Has Been Disabled
You need service pack 2 to be installed.
After updating your Office installation you may need to re-activate the Add-In: How to: Re-enable an Add-in That Has Been Disabled
In some cases it may help to update the Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (VSTO Runtime). You can download the VSTO Runtime installer from here. If this update helped in your case, please give us feedback and let us know (thanks!).
There were problems reported with Roaming User Profiles. Temporarily switch to a local user profile as shown here. After new logon or reboot try to activate TBarCode Office in Options - Add-In - Manage COM Add-ins. If TBarCode is not listed there, try a complete reinstall.
Under specific circumstances Word disables Application Add-Ins completely, e.g. when the loading time exceeds a limit or when a fatal error occurred during loading.
How to re-enable the Add-In is described here: How to: Re-enable an Add-in That Has Been Disabled
After TBarCode Office installation, the add-in is only visible for the user who has installed the product (e.g. the Administrator), other users can not see the add-in. Use one of the two options below to solve this problem.
In order to make the add-in available for another user, you have to register the Office VSTO files for the actual user account again.
To do so, login under the user account, switch to the installation folder - e. g.
C:\Program Files\TEC-IT\TBarCodeOffice 10\bin
TBarCode Office 10.4 (and later) offers an option for registering the add-in for all users in the setup program. This option will create an entry in the HKLM registry hive. If you currently have installed a previous version you have to uninstall it first.
More detailled background information can be found here:
During startup of Word or Excel you receive a System.Deployment.Application.InvalidDeploymentException with error message The manifest may not be valid or the file could not be opened.
The following updates can solve the problem:
During startup of Word or Excel you receive a System.Deployment.Application.DeploymentException with error message Store metadata "DeploymentProviderUri" is not valid (or a different exception message).
To install TBarCode Office without user interaction, run the setup with the following command line arguments
TBarCodeOffice.exe /i /q
TBarCodeOffice.exe /i /q /ComponentArgs "TBarCode Office x64":"ADDIN_ALLUSERS=1"
/ComponentArgs "TBarCode Office":"ADDIN_ALLUSERS=1"
The all users option is available starting with TBarCode Office 10.4.
TBarCodeOffice.exe /i /q /ComponentArgs "TBarCode Office x64":"ADDIN_CURRENTUSER=1"
/ComponentArgs "TBarCode Office":"ADDIN_CURRENTUSER=1"
The current user option is available starting with TBarCode Office 10.8.3.
You can create two kinds of log files by calling the setup with the following arguments:
TBarCodeOffice.exe /i /Log /LogFile wlog.txt
TBarCodeOffice.exe /ComponentArgs "TBarCode Office x64":"/l*v clog.txt"
/ComponentArgs "TBarCode Office":"/l*v clog.txt"
The crash occurs in the OSF.DLL (a DLL from Microsoft) and not directly in our software. We did some research and have seen that (independent from installation of our product) there may be several reasons:
We have feedback that in one case an older version of TBarCode Office (10.5.) does not show up this problem. You can download it from here. Be aware that this older version lacks some of the features and fixes introduced in newer versions.
