2004 Registering Add On Connection Timed Out

Hi I am having a bit of trouble getting an addon to register and load successfully in SBO 2004...

I can get the Add On to Install properly, however when I load it, I get the error :

Add-on connection timed out

This occurs even though the add on has successfully loaded in the background and is running. In the Add On Manager the status of the add on is set to Failed...

I tried setting the AddonIdentifier string before connecting in my code using the Add-on Identifier Generator (Development and Implementation strings but these did not help)

The Helloworld sample was a good help getting thus far, but even when try to install that as an add it disconnects straight away.

Any help much appreciated!

    Hi I solved this problem through a couple of changes:

    1) I upgraded to the latest 2004A patch (5)

    2) I was hard coding the development connection string!

      hi AD,

      it is automatic, but still problem persist.
