Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Applications

We current a VS 2005 Professional license ... what does this Microsoft
Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Applications offer that VS 2005 does not?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

VSTA is an SDK that enables vendors to add .NET programmability to their applications. It is
essentially a subset of Visual Studio 2005 which supports the use of the Visual Basic and C#
programming languages. VSTO (Visual Studio Tools for Office) is built upon the VSTA technology.

It's similar to the model that Microsoft used in the past for the VBA (Visual Basic for
Applications) SDK.

The add-in technology for Outlook 2003 implements COM. You can still build an add-in using Visual
Studio 2005 for Outlook, but it would work via COM interop. You don't need a license for VSTA or
VSTO.

Hi everyone. I am an Access developer having worked with Access-dev. projects for many years on Sql server databases and Access. For the internet I have been using traditional asp. But now I have tried asp.net and this tool seemes great to me. Haven't tried Vb for Visual Studio net, but hope to do that in the very future. Hope that this version of vb goes well together with asp.net although I don't know how.
