  • Question

  • hi guys,


    Primary Interop Assembly are installed, but it does not work,my project can not find this refference at all.

    message like this"Error 2 The type or namespace name 'Office' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft' (are

    you missing an assembly reference?)

    C:\eCART\Trunk\APP\WebService\Model.cs 7 25 ECART"

    but ,if i unload porject and edit the project file to change owc.dll version 1.0 to 1.1, it works.

    //***************org code****************

        <COMReference Include="OWC11">
          <Guid>{0002E558-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}</Guid>
          <VersionMajor>1</VersionMajor>
          <VersionMinor>1</VersionMinor>
          <Lcid>0</Lcid>
          <WrapperTool>primary</WrapperTool>
          <Isolated>False</Isolated>
        </COMReference>

    // ********change to ************** 

        <COMReference Include="OWC11">
          <Guid>{0002E558-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}</Guid>
          <VersionMajor>1</VersionMajor>
          <VersionMinor>0</VersionMinor>
          <Lcid>0</Lcid>
          <WrapperTool>primary</WrapperTool>
          <Isolated>False</Isolated>
        </COMReference>

  • Hello,

    OWC is not supported any longer. See Office Web Components “Roadmap” for more information.

    What PIAs version did you install on the PC?

  • Hi,

    As far as know, OCW10.dll is shipped with Office XP and OCW11.dll is shipped with Office 2003, but both of their version number are 1.0.

    >> How could I make the reference right with owc.dll version?

    If you have Office XP installed, you will use the OCW10.dll; if you have Office 2003 PIA installed, you will use the OCW11.dll, and you don’t need to differentiate it in the project reference version.

    By the way, as Eugene mentioned, the Office Web Components technology is deprecated. This means that only security fixes are being made to all versions of OWC, and no future versions of OWC will be produced.

    For more information, please refer to KB Description of the versions and support for Office Web Components (OWC).

    Regards,
