Is the license for Office Home and Business compatible with Software Development? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I write and sell add-ins to Excel and want to make sure that it's okay under the license for Office Home and Business 2010. I tried to look it up, but couldn't figure it out.

    This includes add-ins created directly in Excel (ie *.xlam files) and add-ins created through Visual Studio 2010 (VSTO).

    There is no difference in Excel between the Home and Business Version in Excel. Your add-ins should run without any limitations on the Homeversion, too.

  • Hi consultboost.com,

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    As far as I know, that there has no more limitation on the add-ins which you developed.

    Have a good day,

    Tom
