  • Hi monbrot,

    Thanks for you sharing your solution, it will help other community when they have this same issue.

    >>>The Office 2013 IDs are not the same I guess because I cannot install my AddIn on a machine where Office 2016 is installed.

    The add-in created in Visual Studio 2013 can be run in Office 2016. You can read more about that in the Running Solutions in Different Versions of Microsoft Office article.


    Thanks again.

    According to your description, please correct me if I have any misunderstandings on your question. It seems that you are looking for product codes. There is no info for Office 2016 published yet. But I believe you can extrapolate values from previous Office versions:

  • I need the ComponentIDs for my Word Add In Setup project to check if the Components (Word, Excel, etc.) are installed.The Office 2013 IDs are not the same I guess because I cannot install my AddIn on a machine where Office 2016 is installed.

    After some research I can find the ComponentIDs for Office 2013 in this Thread:
