Installing the Word Add in on Word 2016 - Windows 10 Operating System RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying install the add-in on Word 2016.I choose the Insert->Add-ins. When I click dropdown, it does not show my add-in there. Hence i click on See All. It opens the Office Add-ins popup.in My Organization tab, i did not see my Add-in or I did not see an option to browse and upload my Add in. Can you please suggest me if I need to place it any directory under Office packages before I try to upload it. I saw the documentation for Mac, and it's suggested for Mac that we need to place the app manifest file under Documents/wef  directory. Is it something we need to do it for Windows also. If so, can someone let me know the process and the path where to upload it with detailed steps. 

    Thank you.

  • Hi DevSN,

    First of all I want to confirm with you what kind of addin you are talking about?

    there are 3 kind of addin that we can create.

    (1) VSTO Addin

    (2) Office Addin (App for Office)

    (3) Save the word file as an Addin

    here I assume that you are trying install Office Addin.

    • so I want to know how you try to deploy the addin?
    • Did you upload your addin to Office store and from there you want to install?
    • or you create a setup of the addin and want to install it ?

     you had mentioned that," i did not see my Add-in or I did not see an option to browse and upload my Add in. Can you please suggest me if I need to place it any directory under Office packages before I try to upload it. "

    I am not sure what you want to do here. you want to upload your addin to Office store or you want to deploy your addin on Word 2016?

    again I assume that you want to upload your addin to Office Store.

    so you need the approval for your addin. please visit the link mentioned below.
