Logging under a different name makes your add-ins disappear

After you install Visual Basic and log on to the machine as a different user (with or without administrator privileges), you cannot see any Add-Ins in the Add-In dialog in Visual Basic.

I ran across this problem when I logged in and installed VB6 on NT Workstation under my User, for a developer of mine. We then spent a lot of time tying to find the Resource Editor and many other Add-Ins which were all intalled on our other copies of VB6.

Then I ran across this MS KB Article ID Q190212 and sure enough, when I logged in on his machine, and opened VB I could see the Add-ins. So we reinstalled VB under his User Name and he now has the addi-ins visibile and usable.

Maybe this will save some else some time.
