Where is VSTO 2010 after getting installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just downloaded and installed this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=20479

    _64 because I have a 64-bit system.

     

    Now, I'm looking for this VSTO 2010 and I can't find it anywhere.  I used to have VSTO 2008 (for Office 2007); not I have Office 2010.  My old VSTO 2008 was here:

    I used to have many tools in there.  Now, re-imaging my machine, I have virtually none.

     

    Based on someone's recommendation I got this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/en/us/editions/express.aspx

    Version = Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition 64-bit DB W/Tools

  • I'm afraid VSTO will not work with free editions of Visual Sudio, and definitely not with 'Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition' which is what you linked to in your first post. You need Visual Studio Professional or above (read: more expensive).

  • Where the heck does this go???  I downloaded VSTO 2010 and VSTO 2008:

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=20479

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=23656

     

    After trying to install both, I got confirmation messages that both installed correctly.  Nevertheless, I can't find any evidence that either version installed.  How does one access VSTO?  Where is it?

  • Sorry to keep posting here, but I just had an idea.  I thought Office had to be installed in order to see VSTO.  So, I just installed Office and I still can't see VSTO anywhere.  This is where it was before:

     

    Now, it does not appear anywhere.
