Issue with getting AppManifest of Server Document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am working on my small utility which will support Win 7/ Office 2010  after migration changes. This application opens a document and shows it manifest data and merge some DLLs and create a new document copy with added features from DLLs. This is running properly on XP machine for office 2003. This application has reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Application.Runtime - serverDocument.

    Now for Office 2010 it is recommended to use Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.ServerDocument.v10.0. And if I extended its properties and methods I cannot see object(ServerDocument).AppManifest property. And because of that I am unable to get remaining properties like Identity.PublicKeyToken, Identity.Version, .Dependency.AssemblyIdentity.Name

    If anyone suggests is anything missing and because of that I am unable to get Manifest?

                lblManifestPublicKeyToken.Text = _docManifest.Identity.PublicKeyToken;
                lblManifestVersion.Text = _docManifest.Identity.Version.ToString();
                lblDependencyName.Text = _docManifest.Dependency.AssemblyIdentity.Name;
                lblDependencyPublicKeyToken.Text = _docManifest.Dependency.AssemblyIdentity.PublicKeyToken;
                lblDependencyVersion.Text = _docManifest.Dependency.AssemblyIdentity.Version.ToString();
                lblDependencyAssemblyPath.Text = _docManifest.Dependency.AssemblyPath;

    Please let me know if more information needed from this.
