How do I get more details regarding a failed application test for an Outlook plugin? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I used the Office App Compatibility Kit to validate an Outlook plugin I created,and the result is “The app manifest does not comply with the expected schema.”

    Our manifest file is auto generated by Microsoft Visual Studio, so I don't know what is incorrect or missing. How do I get more details regarding the failed test result?

  • Do you have MS Exchange in you lab?

    Please try to upload your manifest file to Exchange using ECP -> Organization -> Apps/Add-ins, it'll tell you what wrong with your file with the exact reasons and the position of the issue in the file.

  • Hi Skyage,

    As far as I know, the current manifest schema for Office Add-ins is manifest schema version 1.1. Please check whether the version is correct.

    If not, we need to update the exiting the project to the latest version. Please refer to the link below about more detail:
    Update the version of your JavaScript API for Office and manifest schema files

    In addition, here are some an helpful links for publishing the apps to store for your reference:

  • Just to be clear, I've created an Outlook plugin/Add-in for the desktop application, and it’s a VSTO Add-in.

  • Hi Skygage,

    There is no manifest in the VSTO add-in. VSTO Add-ins consist of an assembly that is associated with a Microsoft Office application. Typically, the VSTO Add-in runs when the associated application is started, although users can also load VSTO Add-ins after the application is already running. Features in VSTO Add-ins that you create are available to the application itself, regardless of which documents are open.

    The apps for Office could install on lots of device, like windows desktop, tablet, OS X desktop, smartphone and etc.
