Centralized distribution for Outlook 2010 Addin RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello together,

    We are currently developing a Outlook 2010 & 2013 Plugin. To be concrete, we develope with VS 2012 using a Outlook 2010 Add-in template.

    Using ClickOnce will just work fine for the local machine. We are now looking for a way to distribute the addin in a centralized way. The goal is to be able to distribute the addin for all user machines in the network. From my understanding, it would be necessary to copy the binaries to the user machine and register the addin. Can this be archieved without any user interaction? Since there is no more SetupProject available for VS2012, would Installshield be an option for this? 

    I am thinking of a .msi installer that can just be deployed via whatever distribution system a company uses, and will be installed without bothering the users.

    Thanks for reading,
