Error 8013150a when attempting to install Addin

Your Addins folder is probably in MyDocuments/Visual Studio 2005/Addins as is standard
BUT if your MyDocuments folder is on a network drive you’ll have issues, as Visual Studio will not load addins from a Network drive


Solution: store your addins folder on a local drive, and point VS to the folder

  3. add the path of your Addins folder
  4. restart VS
  5. go to Tools >> Addins Manager and select the Addin
