How to compile VSTO for Office 64 bit? RRS feed

  • Question

    I created an Outlook VSTO in Visual Studio 2015.  I used InstallShield LE to create a package which I distribute to computers inside my company.  This plug in works fine in Outlook 2019 32bit.

    I now have to deploy the plug on some computers with Outlook 2019 64 bit.  After the installation with the installer I created before, the plug in becomes not visible in Outlook 2019 64 bit (which is of course understandable.)

    So to solve this, I choose in my Visual Studio "x64" as compilation method, but after installing this package on the Office 64 bit-computer, the plugin becomes not visible. Besides that, the program is also still installed in c:\program files (x86) 

    I neither find some option in the "InstallShield LE" where I can indicate a 64bit installer must be created.

    So what steps must I take to create a 64bit installer which installs the plugin so it is available in Outlook 64 bit?
