Upgrading Outlook 2007 VSTO AddIn to Outlook 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a very simple addin that is basically a custom Outlook Ribbon which is very similar to existing Communicate Call w/in a Outlook 2007 contact form. The only differance is that we call our external .NET application and passes a few parameters such as the phone number and contact name.

    I would like to knowwhat we will need to do to make our addin compatible with Outlook 2010.

    Thanks,

    Steve

  • You should be fine, unless you are also building custom commandbars for the Explorer object.

    See:

    You'd need to use Visual Studio 2010 though if you want your add-in to work with 64-bit Outlook 2010.

  • Worth mentioning that I've run AddIns that were build in VS2008 on 64-bit Office. Though not Outlook specifically.
