Automatic Enabling of iManage Add-ins

If the iManage add-ins for Microsoft Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Visio, and MS Project get disabled, you can set the value of iwReEnabledAddinOption in the imWorkOptions.xml file to 0 (zero) to ensure that the add-ins are enabled again when you launch the applications the next time. iManage changes the default value of LoadBehavior registry setting to 3 (load add-ins at startup) in the following hives:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\<application name>\Addins\iManage.<application name>VstoAddIn.15


If the LoadBehavior registry setting in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE is set to a value other than 3, the LoadBehavior registry setting in HKEY_CURRENT_USER reflects the same value. In such scenarios, iManage does not change the value to 3 and the add-in cannot be automatically enabled again unless users manually remove it from the list of disabled add-ins.

This option is common for these five integrated applications and supports the following values:

  • 0: Add-ins are automatically enabled and an iManage Work Agent notification is displayed the next time you launch the applications.

  • 1: Add-ins not enabled automatically and you need to manually enable them for each application.

  • 2: iManage Work Agent prompts you to enable the add-in the next time you launch an integrated application. If you select Yes, the Agent displays a notification that the add-in is enabled.
