  • Hi Mopista,

    Thank you for posting here.

    What do you mean the library could not added?

    I install a Visual Studio 2015 in computer without office to test.

    If you do not install the Office 2016, you could add reference by yourself via dll. But when you debug, the code will show the error. 

    If you install the office 2016, you will add reference from Reference Manager> COM> Type libraries directly.

    Best Regards,
