I have developed a COM Addin in VS2005, but the MSI file does not install
correctly in "advertise" mode (e.g. msiexec /jm <msi file>).  It looks like
the ProgID registry key in settings /Software/Microsoft/Office/Excel/Addins
is not being handled correctly by the VS Setup and Deployment project.  Any
help would be appreciated.
