Re: Visual Studio Tools for Office How to start VSTO


Hi Geethanga,

After installing VS 2005. Install VSTO 2005 SE also. The VST0 2005SE is available at the following location. familyid=5e86cab3-6fd6-4955-b979-e1676db6b3cb&displaylang=en

After installation, launch VS 2005. Create a new project (For example: Visual C#\Office\2003 Add-ins\Word Add-in).

You can find a lot of resources and hands-on labs at
