cant creat office add-in RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I creating a  Document-Level Customization For Word Document, I got an error massage "The project cant be created " if I do not close the document I opened. But in the same situation, I can creat the Document-Level Customization for Excel or Word Temple. I use Community Visual Studio 2015 and Office 2016. So I want to know the reason.

  • Hi Jin,

    First, I suggest you check whether Word Visual Studio Design Time Adaptor Add-in is disabled. You could refer the link below:

    # Project cannot be created because the Word Visual Studio Design Time Adaptor Add-In or Excel Visual Studio Design Time Adaptor Add-In is not working correctly

    Second, I suggest you run VS as administrator.

    Third, I would suggest you repair Office, VS and VSTO runtime.

    Best Regards,
