    You cannot use the VSTO technology for Add-ins for the Mac.

    I have no idea whether Mac supports IDTExtensibility2 Add-ins, but those are not supported in this forum. So I'm going to move your question to the General Office Development forum. From a remark in the following article, it appears it should (or may have at one time)

    However, there really isn't any Mac support in these forums, to speak of. You might have better luck asking this in a venue that supports Mac development.
