Hi Gurus,

We have an Excel addin that is written in C++ and with this addin Excel crashes when we copy anything from the sheet and tried to paste by using any Paste options in Office 2010. Basically it crashes immediately once we try to hover the mouse over any of the Paste options of Office 2010.
One more interesting observation we found that it crashes only on 32-bit Windows XP/7 but not on 64-bit Windows XP/7.
Please help me if anybody has suffered with similar problem.

Thanks in Advance!!!

It sounds like your addin has hooked the paste menu, probably in a hacky way that only works in 64bit. Is it supposed to be adding any options to paste? or modifying data as it is pasted? or is this perhaps an unfinished feature that never made into the version you have but is still there internally causing problems? It sounds like you need to get an addin update or uninstall it. Check that it is indeed supposed to work on 32bit versions.
