    Load addins in order (Word 2002)

    How do I make Word load global addins in the order I want? I don't necessarily need code if this can be done from Word.

    Doesn't it load them in alphabetical order?

    hi Kevin,

    without code i don't know. _maybe_ the loading order depends on the default dir sort order (which can be changed). so you could try experimenting with that, or rename your addins to get the loadsequence you want. or you can do it in code, and have only one add in that loads all the other in the order you set ip.

    Pieter,
    I think you hit on the approach I'll have to take: one main addin that loads the others. In fact, it's a bit more complicated: one global addin that uninstalls any addins that may have loaded from the Startup folder, then after the global addin code runs it'll re-install the others. Oh the joys of .Net Com addins. Don't ask...

    An official statement is hard to find; see this link from the Office97 Ressource Kit

    ... but this link says "they are checked in the order they appear in the Templates and Add-Ins dialog box (with the first found taking priority over those appearing lower on the list)."

    Go figure... Perhaps you can find out more from the article: I only skimmed it.
    [i](edited to add: Just noticed that both articles don't contradict each other. Both say "Word resolves the conflicts in the order in which the templates are listed in the Templates and Add
