How to: Install the UI Update
Updated: October 17, 2013
Applies To: Windows Server 2012 Essentials
Installing a UI update for the Hosted Email Infrastructure SDK is identical to any other UI update you may perform on Windows Server Essentials SDK: you create an .addin file that contains the name, base directory, and type of your assembly. You then place the .addin file and assembly in the appropriate directories. The main difference will be which .addin directories you use, as they target the specific built-in email UI’s that can be modified using the new adorners.
To install an adorner UI update
Create the addin file, as described in How to: Install a Top-Level Tab.
Ensure that the Visual Studio solution for your UI update successfully builds, and that the project has a unique name from other add-ins.
Copy the *.addin file to the %ProgramFiles%\Windows Server\Bin\Addins directory, in the following subdirectories:
Adorner type Location
Add User Wizard adorners
User Properties Dialog adorners
Remove User Wizard adorners
Enable User Dialog adorners
Disable User Dialog adorners
Reset Password Dialog adorners
Copy the binary files that are associated with the add-in to the folder that is specified by the basedir attribute in the .addin file.
The recommended location is %ProgramFiles%\Windows Server\Bin\.
