  • I want specific control over the users who can use the add-in

You can do so in the registry.
By default the add-in will be loaded for all users. However, this behavior can be changed easily by removing the add-in from the HKLM and adding it to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

The x86 and x64 are linked to your OFFICE version (NOT to Windows!)

Please note that the removal of the keys from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE might require admin/installation permissions.
