First I'd like to thank everyone who attended my session at the Office User Group, it was a great fun!
I'm going to write some more posts soon that will each target a specific subject from the session. So stay tuned!
The files from the session:
- The presentation
- The university example code – extract the archive to C:\OfficeUGDemos and everything should work. You must have VS 2008 and .Net 3.5 installed in order to open, build and run these demos.
Some Q&A from the session
Q: Can I add building blocks programmatically?
A: Yes you can. It can be done using the Add method on the BuildingBlockEntries collection. Read about it here.
Q: Must I install .Net Framework 3.5 with my VSTO 3.0 solution?
A: Yes. VSTO 3.0 is written in .Net 3.5 and it is a prerequisite for VSTO 3.0 solutions.
Q: Does the deployment feature of VSTO 3.0 creates a setup.exe?
A: Yes it does. The setup uses ClickOnce though. In order to create an msi file, you'll have to create a setup project which is not a complicated task as well. Read about it here.
So again, thanks for attending,
If you have any questions regarding the session, the samples or any other thing you're more than welcome to contact me and I'll try to do my best,
