Hi Patterson,

I have developed few tools using ArcGIS Pro SDK...Now I would like to install that Addin in the client machine...I am attaching the snapshots for your reference...

When the double click the Addin, It is showing me that it is installed, But When I opened ArcGIS Pro, I am not able to see anything.

Please check the above snapshots and help me in getting the solution.

It appears to still be in a private folder... see https://community.esri.com/message/644752-re-how-to-add-add-in-to-arcgis-pro?commentID=644752#commen... and you may want to check the specific software versions you are using since there are incremental changes and some major changes in Pro 2.0

Hello Dan,

Could you please tell me how could I create a Windows Installer Package for the Solution I created in ArcGIS Pro SDK.

My Solution contains custom Tools.

I would like to know these things.

1. How to add reference of the Custom Tools from my Toolbox in Visual Studio - ArcGIS Pro SDK.

2. How to Package my Solution for Deployment in Client Machines.(Similar to a set up file).

Windows Installer packages are not needed to install an ArcGIS Pro add-ins.  There are two ways to install your add-in (which will always have a file extension of .esriAddInX):

  1. is by double clicking the file on the client machine (which is what you did on the post above) or
  2. by copying the .esriAddInX file into the well-known (or added) folder for Pro Add-ins (by default that's "ArcGIS\AddIns\ArcGISPro" folder in your documents folder)

By looking at your posts above I was not able to tell which version your add-in was built for, nor what version of ArcGIS Pro you trying to install the add-in on.  I would suggest that you match the version of ArcGIS Pro and the ArcGIS Pro SDK when you develop add-ins.  If you are running version 2 of ArcGIS Pro and developed the add-in before version 2.0 please take a look at migration issues documented here: 
https://github.com/Esri/arcgis-pro-sdk/wiki/FAQ#20-migration

If your add-in appears in the add-in list on the client machine that means that Pro found the add-in, however, Pro will not automatically run the add-in, instead Pro looks at your config.daml file to match the desktopVersion attribute under the AddInInfo tag.   Make sure that the desktopVersion matches the version of ArcGIS Pro on the client.

...
<AddInInfo id="{your id guid}" version="your add-in version" desktopVersion="2.0">
