Hopefully this is not a nub move. I thought I posted something but it is not show up.

Govert,

Thanks for all your help so far this is great. I wanted to get your thoughts on adding a cancel parameter to the autoopen event. I know you have a post on an exisiting threat about how to cancel which works. I was hoping by adding a cancel parameter it would give developers an easy placr to check licencing or other reasons to stop the registration.

My use case is not registration validation but more along the lines of self upgrading my addin. I check for new versons on the autoopen event and install the latest verson. It would be awesome if I could set the cancel parameter so the old addin that is running terminates gracefully. Thoughts

Govert,

This follows the discussion on unregistering addins during autoopen found here

There was an initial discussion here:

Then a follow-up here: http://groups.google.com/group/exceldna/browse_thread/thread/3711403e2cb96513
because I think I broke something in version 0.29, with a workaround discussed here:
