Addins shared folder location via registry setting

I've read in the ArcObjects 10 .NET SDK Help that it's possible to set a registry key to specify the location of a shared add-ins folder. It seems from other posts that this should also work in v10.2, but I have tried setting this as follows and cannot see the toolbar that is part of the add-in within the Customise dialog in ArcMap.



If I add the same folder location manually through the Add-in manager, I can see the toolbar. So can anyone see where I'm going wrong? Or is this not supported in 10.2?


If using the registry doesn't work - then how else can we deploy add-ins without getting every user to do this through the Add-in Manager?


Any thoughts appreciated.
