64-bit Rubberduck: a work-around until release 1.21 (soon)

If you’re running 64-bit Microsoft Office, an out-of-the-box Rubberduck install will fail to load in the VBE.

Here’s a work-around until we get to re-test everything and release 1.21:

First, make sure the Rubberduck.Extension key is defined under Addins64, not just Addins:


But then, being registered against the .net 2.0 runtime, the add-in still refuses to load – registering it against 4.0 with regasm.exe fixes this.

c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\RegAsm.exe /codebase $(TargetPath) /tlb

where $(TARGETPATH) is the Rubberduck.dll file, in its installation folder.
