    Hi John,

    Old style installers have to be handwritten. The ARD only describes the registration, you have to create the installer by hand (there is a sample on how to do this in the samples directory).

    However, that sort of installer is being replaced with the new generation installer, that you can find in the Tools directory of the SDK.

    Just fill the information in and when finished press "Package".

    This will generate a zip file that can be imported using the Lightweight Deployment:

    Good luck.

    Hi John lee,

    Also select the Install as a part of registration, after that you will get the Window ->Click on next -> next -> Finish. then Update the Add -on registration window. now check the add-on is working or not.

      Failed to write local registration file for add-on
