For alpha 6, the installer was updated once again in order to more reliably handle different combinations of operating system and Office version.
With alpha 5, I had programmed the installer to determine if the .NET 4.0 runtime files needed to be downloaded and installed. Unfortunately, just after uploading the release, I realized that the installer did a bad job in determining whether the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime needed to be installed, too.
Alpha 6 now attempts to finally fix it, although I am not 100 % sure yet because things are so complicated when it comes to .NET, VSTO and 32/64 bitness.
In addition, I found out that the 64-bit version of the FreeImage DLL had
an external depencency on
vcomp120.dll, which is not necessarily present
on all computers. I have now re-compiled the DLL without this dependency.
