  • Patrick,

    Thanks for your reply. I resolved this issue.

    Infact my problem was, I had five projects in one solution. Out of five one was "app for Office" project and I had set it as startup project. So when i tried to execute my task pane App in Microsoft excel it somehow didnt work.

    After wasting so much of time on how to make it work on office environment, i finally came up with a solution and it worked like a charam. Here is the solution

    In solution Explorer- Select the Solution--> Right Click--> Goto the Properties -->Under Common Properties select Startup Project --> select Multiple Startup projects

    Please reffer the screenshot

    Hope this will help anyone who faces this issue.

    Thanks,
