The VSTO security model relies on certificates, the inclusion list, and lastly, the ClickOnce trust prompt.  it looks like you aren't seeing a dialogue box that says "install or don't install"?

if not, then your inclusion list may be disabled.  if the inclusion list is disabled, then the ClickOnce trust prompt will never appear.  follow the instructions in How to: Configure Inclusion List Security to enable the inclusion list.
