What happens when you try to install it as a normal user?  Do you get an
error message?  If so, what is it?  Does the install work, but you don't end
up with anything in Outlook?  If so, what does the log file contain?

Something is wrong with using regsvr32 to do this (I don't know what, but it
doesn't work for me or many other people either).  However, you can use the
"outlook_addin_register.exe" program to do the same thing.  Run
"outlook_addin_register.exe hkey_local_machine" and see if that works.
