ArcMap add-ins in ArcEngine - Is this possible?

Discussion created by BLynn on Oct 25, 2011
Does ArcEngine 10 allow you to use Add-ins that were developed for ArcGIS Desktop?  Can I use the same custom components in Engine that I use in Desktop?

If this is possible, is there an article or something that explains how to handle the license issues and possibly a how-to.

The desktop custom modules aren't anything fancy just a bunch of customized lookup tools that need to be utilized in a third-party ArcEngine application.
