Which "edition" of Office 2003 do you have Standard or Professional VSTO requires Office 2003 Professional because of certain interfaces that are not included in the Standard version.

Office 2007 includes all of the necessary interfaces in all editions, including standard, Home and Student.

My apologies. After installing VSTO 2005 SE, I pulled down Outlook Hands-on Labs:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx familyid=5e327935-bad0-4329-ab40-99ac85516bcf&displaylang=en

When I try to load the HandsOnLab.Lab1.csproj into Visual Studio, I get the error:

"THE OPERATION COULD NOT BE COMPLETED; NO SUCH INTERFACE"

In fact I get this for any of the projects I try to load under HANDOUTS.

The requirements as stated on the download page are:

Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Professional Edition ; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for the Microsoft Office System (included with Visual Studio 2005)
  • Microsoft Office Professional 2003 SP1 or SP2
    or
  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 SP1 or SP2

I am running VS 2005 Professional, VSTO 2005 SE and Office Outlook 2003 SP2 whcih satisfy these requirements.

After downloading I look at the readme.rtf that came with the Hands On Labs and it states:

The following products must be successfully installed before you can install, build and take the tutorials. The Setup program does not check for any prerequisites so please make sure that all of the following items have been correctly installed before you install the tutorials:

¡¤ Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

¡¤ Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 1 (specifically, Microsoft Office OutlookR 2003 SP1).

¡¤ Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for the Microsoft Office System

I specifically mentions Outlook 2003 and SP1 but I was hoping that the readme was just out of date and written before the advent or SP2.

Regardless, being a VSTO beginner the hands on labs would prove most valuable. I simply want to be able to use them. Any clues

Thanks,

From cruising around a little more in this news group, I was able to determine that my problem was that I had loaded VSTO 2005 SE on top of VS 2005 Professional which when having done so only installs the application-level features of VSTO. I went back and installed the full version of VSTO for Microsoft Office and all is well.

Thanks for your time and help.

I am having a similar installation issue. I have Office 2003 Small Business Edition SP2, and VSTO complains that Office 2003 SP1 is not installed. Does your post mean that I cannot install VSTO without upgrading to Office 2007





Re: Visual Studio Tools for Office VSTO 2005 SE Installaion issues

Christin-MSFT

That depends on which version of VSTO you're trying to install. Please give a full description of the version(s) of VS and version(s) of Office.

I am using Office 2003 Small Business Edition, which I removed and re-installed using the Full Installation, and then applied SP1 only. My VSTO is 2005, which was just purchased (from Microsoft). It is an upgrade version, as I have Borland c++ Builder. Beyond that, I don't know the version - setup fails before much of anything happens.

VSTO has very specific requirements because some importaint DLLs were not shipped in the Small Business Edition. From the VSTO web page, you can see the editions of Office 2003 that are supported:

Developing and running Office customizations built with Visual StudioR 2005 Tools for Office requires at least one of the following versions of Microsoft Office:
? Microsoft Office 2003, Professional Edition
? Microsoft Office 2003, Professional Edition with InfoPath
? Microsoft Word 2003*
? Microsoft Excel 2003*
? Microsoft InfoPath 2003*
? Microsoft Outlook 2003*

*Requires the individually-packaged version (standalone version) of the product

I think you have actually shown the requirements for VSTO rather than VSTO SE. If you look at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library//2ac08ee2(vs.80).aspx it appears to show that VSTO SE can be installed on Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003 as well as the products shown in your post.

Please can you confirm that VSTO SE will install on Office 2003 Standard.

I've just wasted two whole days trying to get an Excel app running in our office. It works fine on my development machines but I cannot get it to run on any of the normal user machines. The only difference I can see is that the normal office machines are Office 2003 standard but my development machine is Office Professional. However the page linked above seems to indicate VSTO SE should work on office standard.

Andrew

Andrew - The article you referenced is talking about deploying to a client machine which would run the solution, not about the prerequisites for a Developer machine that would run the Visual Studio tools.

The prerequisites for installing VSTO 2005 SE are exactly what I listed before, and you cannot use Office Standard Edition with VSTO 2005 SE.
