VSTO 2005

P: n/a
Le
Folks,

I'm trying to do some office automation using VSTO 2005. I've verified that
..Net Programmability Support is installed for every MS Office application
and Microsoft Forms 2.0 .Net Programmability Support is also installed under
Office Tools through Office Setup. I've then installed VSTO 2005 (vstor.exe,
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...isplaylang=en).
After installing everything and doing a reboot, I'm not getting an Office
node under Visual C# with any of the office templates in Visual Studio 2005
(Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Version 8.0.50727 RTM.050727-4200) when
attempting to create an new project.

I've also attempted to look for the VSTO Dll's
(Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.dll, Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.dll, etc..)
in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VSTO\8.0 to add reference
inside my projects and there not there.. All I see are the
Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.xml and Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.xml docs
that have comments for all the methods that are useable from these Dll's.

If any one could shed any light on this, it would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks in advance,

OK, what's happening is that vstor.exe isn't VSTO 2005--vstor.exe is just
the runtime files for end-user computers, not the design time tools for
developers. VSTO 2005 is a full edition of Visual Studio, so to get the
design tools you have to buy the VSTO 2005 product or the Visual Studio Team
System products (the Office tools are not included with Visual Studio 2005
Professional or Standard). There's more information about VSTO here:
