Excel 2016 desktop version that works with VSTO RRS feed

  • Question

  • There many post that some Excel versions not compatible with VSTO Worksheet project. I have desktop (not Office 365 version) Excel MSO (16.0.4498.1000) 64 bit and not possible to create VSTO Worksheet project (no problems with Excel Add-In project).  In VS2015 (update 3) was RPC Server fault error in VS2017 simple error message.

    1. Is there really problem with this Excel version and is there open ticket for this?

    2. Which patches i must remove from Excel  so that VSTO start working? As I sad Office 365 solutions are not suitable for my installation.

  • Hello,

    The issue does exist in some certain version of Office.

    If possible, I suggest you develop VSTO add-ins project instead of excel template or workbook.
