Add-On Problem Help

Hi all. I've built an Add-On using VB.NET. This Add-On uses both the UI and DI API's. In the dev't environment the program works great. I start SBO, run the program from VS.NET and the intended SBO screen is modified as I designed. It's all good.

However, I'm having problems with the function of the add-on from the SBO environment.

I used the sample Add-On Installer from the SDK as the basis for my setup package. I tested using the "Hello World" just to test and it worked fine. I then substituted my .exe name and file. I re-built the installer .exe, created the .ard file and added that with the Add-On Manager in SBO.

The Add-On seems to install fine, but when it goes to run (after restarting SBO), I get an error saying: "File or assembly name Interop.SAPbouiCOM, or one of its dependencies, was not found".

Obviously the UI-API is already installed and working on my machine. So I'm wondering where this error comes from. Do I need to do something more or different with the UI and DI API .dlls?

Any ideas?

    It appears I've gotten past this error by putting the .dll into the installation directory. Is this correct? That would mean that all add-on's would require possilby the same .dll in their specific install directories.

    Anyway, I can manually start the program from the Add-on manager, and the green bar at the bottom shows the Add-on is connected. But then a few seconds later I get the message saying the Add-on is disconnected and it lets me choose whether to re-connect, disconnect from the current company or continue without the add-on.

    What gives?
