    Distribute VBA Add-In

    Hello All,

    What is the best way to distribute my VBA Add-In to everyone in the office?

    Ideally, I would like a process whereby the Add-In could automatically be installed in the default directory for Add-Ins.

    In a perfect world, I would like a process whereby it installs in the default directory, but I have the ability to distribute updates as well.


    Anyone have knowledge about distribution?

    Put it on a network share (that makes it accessible to all) and make it read-only (which prevents Excel from locking the file, and therefore allows you to make updates).

    How do I make the file Read Only, and how do I make the update? Replace the file or make it non read only, edit, and save?
