64-bit Office 365 (using Click-to-Run) breaks document level VSTO RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Visual studio flat out refuses to do anything document level with word or excel. I switched to the 32 bit version of C2R based Office 365 and it works just fine. Add-ins work in either format, but in this case I didn't need an add-in.

    The error is a generic "MissingCOM" type that keeps the file from ever being generated.

    Spent most of my afternoon pinning down why this was broken, so hopefully someone out there finds this useful.

    Is this an issue others are aware of already? I thought it was fixed after 2013
