..I want to save my custom toolbar as a .esriaddin file that I can then use anywhere, instead of just one machine. How do I do that?
Your previous thread sstill doesn't specify what route you want to take Custom Addins...
So I only see python addins What is a Python add-in?—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
but I suspect this may not be what you want
there is a group, but it has little content or questions Python AddIns
so I suspect this a .net issue
As Dan mentioned, there is no need to start a second thread on geonet.
but you may want to also look thru Python Add-Ins – How to add built-in commands to your custom toolbar or menu | ArcGIS Blog
and download the Python addin wizard http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=5f3aefe77f6b4f61ad3e4c62f30bff3b#!
I would recommend Python, however adding do not yet work in ArcGIS Pro (unless something has changed recently) but should with ArcGIS Desktop 10.x and above (maybe 9.x too...can't remember off the top of my head).
however, the toolbox will work in Pro. Make sure you store the scripts as relative paths, and although it my not be a simple double click to install an add in, a simple copy of the toolbox and scripts should work.
From here Migrate your work to ArcGIS Pro—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS for Desktop
existing toolboxes, scripts and models will continue to work in Pro 1.2 but *.NET application level applications written for arcmap won't work in Pro
Sorry...I was in a hurry. I'll be more specific:

re your points that I can address
good luck, do what works for you and I hope others chime
nk, you must not be a developer. As a graduate student and a professional developer, traveling between multiple campuses, I have to be prepared to support multiple machines, multiple operating systems, the cloud, data centers, the web, whatever. In any language. The reason why I want to setup an esriaddin file for a global custom toolbar, like Ian Broad's fine Resources toolbar (GIS Resources Python Add-in for ArcMap – Ian Broad ), is that ASU roaming user profiles continually reset daily, so even if I come back to the same machine on the same campus the next day, I'll find my customization reset to the default. That can include geoprocessing environments, checked extensions (ASU has licensed them all), and the like.
I'll eventually get up to speed, but during the academic year, especially since this semester is my first graduate semester, my time for this stuff is extremely limited. However, this summer I'll be getting into it full force. I love R BTW

ahhh makes sense... they don't touch our faculty profiles, student ones are a different story...
