Installing on Development Machine

Before you try and run the install always clean your solution first
Before going back to development make sure the solution is completely uninstalled from Program Files
Before installing document-level solutions make sure the document designers within Visual Studio are closed




Installing via Internet

By default a test certificate is not sufficient to allow a solution to be installed from a website
If a real publisher certificate is used then you will see an installl prompt
