Check registry setting

For a Word plugin you need to set HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Office/Word/Addins/ for example.

You would copy this from the source computer's settings.

For me I just need Description, FriendlyName, LoadBehavior, Manifest and delete the rest.

Manifest may look like [TARGETDIR]YourPlugin.vsto|vstolocal

I cannot guarantee that works, but it is what we did before VS 2012 forced a switch to IS 2012 Spring Express.
