Anyone use Visual Studio Office Dev Extensions?

P: n/a
Hello,

Has anyone here used the Visual Studio 2003 Office Developers Extensions?
I'm wondering if the package and deployment wizard is any better than it's
XP / 2002 counterpart.

I already have 2002 Dev Edition, but would like something a little more
configurable and a little more reliable when it comes to dependancies.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Perhaps look at Installshield or something. It can package up all sorts
of redistributables (Access, VB, DAO, ADO, MDAC, DirectX etc etc)

Although you will also need a developer version of Access as you must
have a license to redistribute it.

Hi Bradley,

Money is an issue, that's the thing. If VS 2003 will do a better job than
2002, then I'll go for the upgrade earlier rather than later. Looking more
for anyone with experience with VS 2003 Office Dev Extensions.

Thanks though.

Fair enough. That's exactly why I don't have a copy of either! :)
