Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) is a set of tools for the C# and VB.NET developer. It primarily aids in extending the user interface of Office 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013 applications. Using the VSTO templates the developer can create managed code COM Add-ins for many Office applications. For Word and Excel, VSTO also offers a managed code alternative to VBA in the form of document-level customization templates. For more information, see the Please Read Next message.
The Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) forum is for VSTO-specific questions. Please feel free to post questions or issues specifically related to developing managed code applications using VSTO.
If you have questions or issues pertaining to non-VSTO specific topics such as Office application versions other than those listed above - "apps for Office", VBA, classic VB, C++, ASP.NET, WinForms, Shared Add-ins, etc., please post them in the appropriate Microsoft forum or newsgroup.
