  • Hi Andrew

    No, it's not possible to create VSTO projects for Office 2010 using VS 2008. That version supports only Office 2003 and Office 2007.

    The Office PIAs aren't what makes VSTO possible. They're a "translater" between the Office COM world and the .NET Framework. Any .NET solution that works with office applications (Windows Form, Console App, Shared Add-in) communicates with Office via the PIAs.
