    Remove Addin (2002)

    How does one go about permanetly removing an add-in. To set one up you would use Tools>Addins>Browse.

    I don't want the user to see a reference to the checkbox or addin.

    Thanks,
    John

    John Walkenbach {Excel 2002 Power Programming with VBA, Chapter 30, Add-Ins, page 857} :

    "... there is no way to remove unwanted add-ins from the list directly from Excel. You must edit the Windows Registry and remove the references to the add-in files you don't want listed. Another way to do this is to move or delete the add-in files. Then when you attempt to open the add-in from the Add-Ins dialog box, Excel will ask if you want to remove the add-in from the list."
