Targeting outlook 2000

P: n/a
Hi

I would like my app to target outlook 2000 and above, but since two versions
of outlook can not exist on the same machine, I only have outlook 2002. How
can I develop for outlook 2000?

Thanks

Regards

Hi John,

One possibility:- Create a new partition on your hard disk (or buy another
disk). Install the minimum - Win, VS, Outlook. Develop on the main system and
go for a run on the other one every now and then. It'll be easier if your
project directory is on a drive that both systems can access (ie. not on C:).

There aren't standard PIA's for Office 2000. You need to create your
interop assemblies by installing the Outlook 2000/Office 2000 type libraries
on your machine and referencing them in your project.

The easiest way to do this, of course, is to install Outlook 2000 on your
development machine. If you can't do that, you could try copying the type
libraries from anothe rmachine that has Outlook 2000 installed and
registering them manually using regsvr32.

However, you really should have Outlook 2000 (not Outlook XP) installed on
your development machine, since it's the oldest version of Outlook that you
want to support. It will make testing much easier.

Robert is right. You should develop against the earliest version that you
intend to support.
