How to transform Word 2010 addin to Office 2013? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I have a word 2010 addin and I want to use it in Office 2013. The Visual Studio setup for the addin-project contains checks for PIA 2010 and vsto2010. The addin-Project targets .net framework 4. Client Profile.

    When I run the setup, it does not find the PIA 2010 what actually is correct.

    I tried to solve the problem using office 2010pia_bootstrapper without success. 

    The question: how could I do compile or run my word addin project for office 2013?

    Sicerely Yours

  • remove checks for PIA and make those dlls private to your add-in or make conditional PIA checks based on found office version and also bundle 2013 PIA
