Office 2013 COM Add-ins

Hi, we have Office 2013 installed on the View image and use non-persistent desktop.

Is it possible to install Office COM Add-ins in Appstack, assign them to users and enable the add-ins in Outlook/Word?

If so are there any scripts you need to run to enable them and how do you accomplish this?

Is it possible to consider bundling all office applications + Add-ins in a single AppStack?

If not, provision an AppStack for Add-Ins on a machine that contains office applications in the base.

This may help to avoid activation or licensing issues when assigning the AppStack.

I agree with Lakshman on this one. Just install Office in base and install Addons as an Appstack.

We have installed EndNote (which is a Citation tool) into an appstack and when you assign it to a user (even when he is logged in) the Plugin is immedialty activated.

If you have an Addin that can only be added by the user you could try and pull it off using GPO's and Registry preferences (which is what we do with applications that need user driven activation of Addins).
