If you're determined and do your research, you don't need either - just go
with the freebee SDK. If you need a project setup for you and don't want
to know what is under the hood... then I'd say go with VSTO. To get back
(closer to) your question, VS2008 might be enough for many, but it might not
include the canned projects for building an office add-in. For that, check
the product comparison that the prior individual posted a link to.

John,

For who do you ask this.

Accoording to the questions you place in these newsgroups, then I assume
that the tools in Visual Studio are more than you can handle at the moment.

Does it matter? The OP asked a question, so why not give an answer?

According to the page I referenced the Professional edition or one of the
"bigger" versions of VS is required. Express and Standard editions do not
come with the project templates for Office projects.

Despite of you in this message, did I do that.

You should first read for your write, the OP wrote about the Pro version, I
don't know what about you were answering.

I provided a link exactly answering the OP's question. I simply didn't see
the necessarity to sum up what's written in the page I referenced so the OP
cannot blame me for an error in my message. AFAIS the Professional edition
is sufficient for the OP's needs.
