running programs published from VS2013 on a Win 8 OS with Office 2013 on Windows 7 clients running Office 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • What's the score running programs published from VS2013 on a Win 8 OS with Office 2013 on Windows 7 clients running Office 2010? Having a problem as the application uses Excel 15 interop files which it say it cannot find at run time.

  • Hi Max,

    I split your Office question to a forum more likely to be able to answer.

    Windows Store apps (the subject of the Building Windows Store apps with C# or VB  forum) cannot interact directly with Office or run on Windows 7.

  • Is this a VSTO project?

    If so, in Excel 2010, we cannot find Excel 15.0 PIA.

    you need to publish the application with Excel 15.0 PIA.

    Please check whether "Embed Interop Types" is ture.

  • Hi Max

    You have to tell us more about what kind of program this is. Is it an App for Word? A VSTO add-in? A Windows UserForm? Something else?

    Which version of the .NET Framework did you use?
