Customize/replace error message RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I have a document level customization project with Excel 2010/C# 4.0 which is distributed to a large audience.

    Now many a times it happens that the person who has installed the customization will share it with someone who hasn't. Thus, when the latter opens it, she will get the message  ''Download file C:\....\myProj.vsto''did not succeed. For people who know VSTO is this is fine, but for ordinary users this gets very confusing.

    Thus, can this message be customized instead, for e.g. to show a brief note informing the user what to do to make the customization work?

  • Hi Vishal,

    Thank you for posting.

    As far as I know, the error message can't be customized, it is the build-in feature of VSTO. We can deploy to the customers via zip or rar package to keep the files not lost, so that the error does not occur.

    Hope this can help you and thank you for your understanding.

    Best Regards,
