Oracle ADF 11g Desktop Integration Add -In for Excel fails to install

edited Mar 5, 2020 4:42PM in JDeveloper and ADF

I get the following error when trying to install ADF 11g Desktop integration.

Oracle ADF product version 5.05.20895

Windows 10 (1709)

Office 2016 32bit.



Installs ok as administrator but not for the logged-in user.

    UPDATE: This issue occurs for a user who already has the ADF 11g Desktop integration installed on another PC.

    I have found a workaround by installing a different version of the ADF 11g Desktop integration on the new PC. This installs successfully but the add-in still does not work but now lists the Oracle ADF 11g Desktop Integration Add-in for Excel in Program and Features. This enables me to uninstall the add-in and then successfully reinstall version 5.05.20895 of the add-in which is now fully working.

    This error indicates that the installer is attempting to run an advertised installation. This is not supported.
