Turning VBA code into COM Add-in RRS feed

  • Question

  • My boss is deploying Visual Studio 2010 to my computer finally in the next few days. I'm learning VB.Net programming since I've already played a lot with VBA.

    My first project is to take some Outlook VBA scripts I've written and turn them into COM addins. I want to make these easy to deploy to my coworkers so they can use them too. How involved is this process? Do I have to modify my VBA code heavily or does it transfer pretty easily?

  • So I'm new to and I've done VBA for a reasonable amount of time. I have an Outlook application written in VBA, and it only consists of one userform module. I want to make it easy to deploy and have a button on the ribbon to execute the form (I wish i played with Ribbon manipulation more). How easy is this to do?

  • Hello,

    I wrote about some aspects of this process in From VB6 to .NET. At last…
