  • Hi vijay Akkaladevi,

    We could install PIAS when installing Office or by using redistributable package. PIA Office 15 corresponds Office version 2013 and 2016. However, as far as I know,  there is no redistributable package for Office 16 or Office 13 at present. So I think you have to install office to install the PIA's.

  • Hi Terry,

    I have office solution which built on 2007, I have upgraded to 2016. But in my .csproj after the migration below tags are added. What does it mean?

     <BootstrapperPackage Include="Microsoft.Office.PIARedist.2007">
          <Visible>False</Visible>
          <ProductName>Microsoft Office 2007 Primary Interop Assemblies</ProductName>
          <Install>true</Install>
        </BootstrapperPackage>

    I am worried about this "Microsoft.Office.PIARedist.2007". what this will do?

    And also i  have office2016 installed but the PIA are not installed . Latest PIA i have in the folder

    Microsoft Visual Studio\Shared\Visual Studio Tools for Office\PIA\Office15 

    Office15(Office 2013) . Why office16 PIA's are not installed?

  • Hi vijay Akkaladevi,

    ->Why office16 PIA's are not installed?

    Office 2016 is using Microsoft.Office.Interop 15.0, PIA Office 15 corresponds Office version 2013 and 2016, the dll in PIA\Office15 are for Office 2013 and Office 2016.

    >> I have office solution which built on 2007, I have upgraded to 2016

    Office solution created by Office 2007 could also be used in Office 2016.

    You could see below link for more information.

    Did you get any error when you are using your project in office 2016?

  • I didn't get any error. When  i migrated i see 

    <BootstrapperPackage Include="Microsoft.Office.PIARedist.2007">
          <Visible>False</Visible>
          <ProductName>Microsoft Office 2007 Primary Interop Assemblies</ProductName>
          <Install>true</Install>
        </BootstrapperPackage>

    Just curious to know is it dependency on 2007 or some thing?
