Hi everybody,

This is my first time posting a question in this forum. Lets get straight to the problem.

Situation:-

I've created an addin for Word 2007 using VSTO2005 SE. My task now is to re-create the same addin (same function, same look) in Outlook 2007. Addin contains function like setting a specific language in document, calling an external exe file and so on. I've configured Outlook to use Word as its email editor.

So my question is, can I just use the existing Word addin or do I need to create a separate addin for Outlook

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you,

Westman (Software Engineer-TNT)

You'd also need a separate Outlook 2007 add-in to support scenarios where Outlook 2007 is installed but not Word 2007.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. When I open Outlook and tried to compose a message, the addin did not appear. What went wrong Do I need to add/modify something in my Word addin code FYI, The addin was working and running successfully in WOrd 2007. My addin doesnt contain any function that related to Outlook, it should just appear in the email editor.

Regards,

Westman.

I'm not sure what to suggest. It should work. What is your Addin trying to do Is there a Ribbon button that does not appear as expected

If you want your add-in's functionality to be available in the email editor, you'll need to write a separate add-in for Outlook, which uses a stub of Word, not Word.exe, for the email editor.
