I want to install The Analysis ToolPack and the Analysis ToolPack- VBA on the target machine. I am trying to figure out how to get these items checked in the Addins Menu * see Attachment*. Is there a registry entry that checks these?

No, I never heard anything on this. I did call Microsoft and they said that we were not licensed to install Analysis Tool Pak addins on client machines and there was no "legal" way to do that.

Now you can set the properties of your addin to "installed" through your application, but the user will get a runtime error when using your application if the source media for the excel addins are not installed. These users will need the Office CD to load whatever addings you require.


Good Luck,
