Hello,

I downloaded the vstor to program against Microsoft Word. After a successful installation I tried to make a new word project (Add New Project->Office->Word Document) but everytime I get the following error:

A compatible version of Microsoft Office Word 2003 is not installed on this computer. You must install Microsoft Office Word SP 1 and the Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office runtime (Vstor.exe). Select the Repair option when you install the runtime. VSTOR.exe is available on the Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office installation media or at the Microsoft Download Center....

My Operating System: XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP2
My Office Package: German Microsoft Office edition for students and teachers
My Visual Studio: VS 2005 Team Edition for Software Developers

The Hardware should be good enough

I appreciate any help

Hi Roland,

VSTO doesn't work with Microsoft Office for Students and Teachers Edition - you will need a standalone version of Word or Office 2003 Professional.

Now I've got MS Word 2003 SP2 Professional Edition. The error message is the same

Thanks

Hi Roland

I'd like to review exactly which software is involved here, if you don't mind...

You have

  • windows XP (Home)
  • Office Pro 2003 with SP2: German edition Did you first uninstall the student/teacher edition
  • Visual Studio Team Suite 2005: German edition Did you install VSTO through this setup interface

The vstor.exe download from the Microsoft site doesn't enable you to develop VSTO solutions, only to install and run them. The .NET Framework must be installed before you install Office, otherwise, you must re-run Office setup and explicitly choose to install the PIAs (".Net Programmability Support" is these are named - for each application - in the Setup tree).
