Hi,

I am working on Visual Studio 2005 (8.0.50727.42). Also have VSTO2005 Second Edition and Office interop assemblies.

I have download the 'outlook samples' from MSDN. And trying to open one sample, for example 'ShortcutBar.sln'. Am getting the following message. The message is very generic, not giving a hint what application is missing!

---------------------

"One ore more projects in the solution could not be loaded for the following reason(s)

The application for the project is not installed

These projects will be labeled as unavailable in Solution Exporer. ....."

----------------------

Thank you.

Sen.

Zubair,

This post didn't help. One thing I doubt is, I am using office 2003 SP2. These samples are developed in Office 2003 SP1.

Are you using Office SP1 or SP2

i have already worked out this possibility , but of no avail.
i installed both of these and tested seperately. currently i have sp1 installed.
i am sure the problem is due to VSTO version, i am using VSTO SE, and i doubt all these
samples have been developed in VST0.
i cant run any sample , every time i try to open a sample project, it gives me the same Error.

i am stuck

lets do something so that no body experiences such a problem in future

Thanks

The documentation tells:

"VSTO 2005 SE does not include any of the projects that were shipped with the earlier releases. Specifically, it does not add the Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office document-level project types to Visual Studio Professional; document-level project types are only available in Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office and Visual Studio Team System."

I don't have a team system, also couldn't locate the installable of 'Visual Studio 2005 Tools', may be when we have either of these, the sample project can be opned.

Hello.

You are correct. The sample projects for Office 2003 that you have mentioned were written for VSTO 2005, and not VSTO 2005 SE. VSTO 2005 SE is a free download, designed to enable development of Office 2003 & Office 2007 Application level Add-ins. However, VSTO 2005 enables Office 2003 Document-Level customizations. VSTO 2005 is not free and must be purchased. You can find more information on it here: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa700832.aspx

Thanks.

Brent,

I am a VS2005 Professional with MSDN Premium subscriber and my VS Professional has the same problem with every sample I come across.

Can you please tell me exactly why this is happening and what to do to convert the samples so they work
