Publishing an Office COM/Automation Addin RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

        I understand through MS support that a COM addin cannot be published for sale through the office store. If the addin was appropriately packaged, signed, installable, etc, could it be published to the Windows app store? I appreciate any responses.

  • Hello,

    Currently, the desktop app converter can help to enable your existing desktop application written for .NET 4.6.1 or Win32 to be converted to UWP. But VSTO add-ins are not supported by Project Centennial now.

    You may submit a feature request at Windows Developer User Voice Site so that MSFT might will add it to their to-do-list. Usually, the more votes your idea gets, the more possibility that it will come true.

    Thank you.

    Best regards.
