64-Bit MS Word 2010 Addins RRS feed

  • Question

  • Till now I have successfully developed a 32-bit MS Word 2010 Addin using Visual Studio 2010>Extensibility>Shared Addins. Now I have to convert this into 64-bit.

    Is there a way i can convert the existing one into 64-bit or do I have to create a new Project? Overall I want that addin to work on MS Word 2010 64-Bit

    Thanks in Advance

  • Hi Adeel,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    According to your description, I think it is better to create a new project. See in this article, it is mainly about deploying COM Add-ins for 64-bit Office.

    Hope it helps.

    Best regards,

    Thanks for the help. These are the 2 changes I mad with the original COM Addin.

    In the properties of Setup I changed the target platform to X64 and in the properties of the Addin I changed it to any CPU. Now the the addin is loading but when I click on it, no command is getting executed. Can someone tell me the reason? Does 64-bit Addin follows different OnAction command?
