  • A VSTO add-in or something else?

    For which Office application?

  • you need to incorporate a Word 2010 Ribbon XML in your add-in in order to customize the context menus. See this article:

    There are lists of the various built-in Ribbon tabs, groups and their controls available for download. If the context menu is not new, you'll find it in the Office 2010 documentation:

    This is Office 2013 documentation that mainly shows what's new in 2013, or no longer available in 2013:

  • I am using visual studio 2012 and VB and i want to somehow modify the right click event of shape in PowerPoint 2013.

    When you select a shape in PowerPoint 2013 and right click then two window pops up:-

    • One window with only three menu separator buttons named Style, Fill and Outline
    • Second is the context menu list with options like Cut, Copy , Paste, Edit Text,Edit Points and so on.

    Now i want to add one more menu separator button to the First window (one with three buttons Style ,Fill and Outline ) in PowerPoint 2013 .

    Please tell how to go about that

  • I want to create an add-in installer for multiple machines and not just specific to mine.

    The links you provided talk about single machine add-in

  • Your original question here has nothing to do with an installer...
