  • Hi safiz,

    >> I can't seem to launch  Office app( task pane app) in Word online. Am i doing something wrong or there is, currently, no support for Office Apps (Office Add-ins) in Online version of word?

    Do you want to create a task pane for word online in Visual Studio or you want to insert a task pane in Word Online from the Office Store?

    If you want to debug task pane for word online in Visual Studio, I think you could not, I made a test with task pane, and I could not find the "Internet Explorer" in the Start Action.

    >> currently, no support for Office Apps (Office Add-ins) in Online version of word?

    At present, task pane is supported in Word online.

    The link below shows details.

  • I have the same problem. My HelloWorld app is available in Word online, shows up in the task pane, but cant do anything, no events are fired. F12-debug console says: "SCRIPT5022: Application 32 does not exist. Microsoft.Office.WebExtension.initialize(reason) is not called."

    Edit: Word online should support task pane apps says msdn here:https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj220082(v=office.15).aspx

    Edit: Same result in IE10/FF37/Chrome42

    It would be helpful if you could share us more details about how you develop your task pane, and how you insert your task pane in Word online.

    I will recommend you post a new thread for your own issue with more details about your issue, and there would be more community members to help you.

    Best Regards,
