Infopath cannot activate microsoft visual studio tools for application? RRS feed


  • Hi Howard,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    As far as I know, that InfoPath has build-in Visual Studio which named "Visual Studio Tools for Application (VSTA)". And in InfoPath 2010 VSTA's visual stduio version is 8.0.50727.4039 (Visual Studio 2005). And Visual Studio 2010 has InfoPath's PIA, it can develop add-in for InfoPath. The guides which you mentioned will setup VSTA into your InfoPath and you can access it via following button.

    Have a good day,
