Two Addin tabs in Microsoft Project

Post by Nathan » Thu Nov 26, 2015 10:20 am

I'm using the RiskyProject Lite integration with MS project 2010. schedule in MS Project, I always have two RiskyProject Lite6 tabs in MS Project. Please advise how to fix rather than working around as described.

The dual tabs is normally, but not always, due to an incomplete uninstall of the software, where for unknown reasons the Windows installer does not remove references to the Addin. In these cases, if the software is reinstalled it creates an identical reference to the Addin in the Project Add-in Manager. We can remove the reference without editing the registry in the Options.

1. Open MS Project 2010.
2. Click the File tab on the ribbon.
3. Click Options.
4. Click Add-Ins
5. You should see two RiskyProject Addin on the Active Application Add-Ins.
6. In the Manage drop-down list at the bottom of the dialog, select Com Add-ins and then click GO. There will be two entries for the Addin listed. If you highlight the Addin, it will show the location of the addin code in the Location reference.


7. Select one of the entries and click Remove. If this fails to remove the Addin entry, clear the checkbox and click OK. This will disable one of the tabs, so you do not have two.
