Convert Excel 2010 VSTO Addin To Excel 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have an addin written for Excel 2010 and I have been tasked with doing whatever is necessary to make it run in Excel 2013.

    I have VS 2012 with the new vsto 2013 addin templates installed

    Can anyone give me an overview of what I will need to do to convert this 2010 addin to 2013 please?

    Many thanks

  • Hi Trevor

    Do you need to convert for some specific reason, or just make sure the add-in can also be used in Excel 2013?

    Have you tried installing it on a 2013 machine? Most add-ins will run just fine on a newer version as long as nothing in the underlying technology has changed. No need to perform a "conversion" of the underlying codebase.
