VSTO add-in Installation

To download the VSTO add-in installation folders, go to https://manager.onaskcody.com/admin_center/addins/. Here you choose to download either the 64-bit or the 32-bit version depending on what version of Office your computer is running.

Be aware that the 64-bit version of the installer will not work on a 32-bit Office version and vice versa. 

 

Installer types

The Windows Installer (meetingplus-x64.msi) requires dependencies to be installed separately.

The self-contained installer (meetingplus-x64.exe) will download dependencies from the Internet.


Silent Installation 

The Windows Installer can be installed in silent mode by setting the following properties:

PIDKEY - Set this property to your Meeting+ Add-in license key from the AskCody Admin Center.

The format of the license key will always be validated during installation. The license key itself will be validated every time the add-in is opened.

ASKCODYREGION - Set this to either EU (for onaskcody.com) or US (for goaskcody.com) to skip online license key validation.

This is useful for performing the installation without being dependent on an active Internet connection. Please note, that the license key is still validated every time the add-in is opened.

 

Examples 

Running a silent install:
msiexec /i meetingplus-x64.msi PIDKEY=license_key_from_admin_center /qn

Running a silent install with no license key verification (Europe):
msiexec /i meetingplus-x64.msi PIDKEY=license_key_from_admin_center ASKCODYREGION=EU /qn

Running a silent install with no license key verification (USA):
msiexec /i meetingplus-x64.msi PIDKEY=license_key_from_admin_center ASKCODYREGION=US /qn

Writing installation information to a log: 
msiexec /i meetingplus-x64.msi /l*v installation_log.log PIDKEY=license_key_from_admin_center ASKCODYREGION=US /qn
