Hello,

I was reading this page where it indicates, "At runtime, if a .xll.config file is present, it will be used. Otherwise the packed .config file will be used as the configuration for for the add-in’s AppDomain."

I am not finding this to be true. Instead, the packed .config is always being used and the settings in the stand-alone .config file are ignored.

Is anyone else seeing this?

Tom

HI Tom,

 

It should work like that, but you have to be careful with the name.

 

If the add-in is called MyAddIn.xll then you need MyAddIn.xll.config, similarly

MyAddIn64-packed.xll needs MyAddIn64-packed.xll.config.

Yes, correct. I was wrong. It does, in fact, work just fine.

Thanks
