    VSTO SE is an add-on for Visual Studio 2005. It cannot be used with Visual Studio 2008. Visual Studio tools for Office 2005 originally had NO support for creating Office Add-ins. This was provided by the "Second edition" (SE).

    Visual Studio 2008 incorporated the capabilities of "SE" into the full Visual Studio for Tools 2008 release.

    You cannot convert an Add-in created in VS 2008 to a "VSTO 2005 SE" add-in. Nor can I imagine any reason why anyone would want to do that...

  • It's probably the best approach to create new VSTO-SE project in Visual Studio and then copy the files from the older version - except ThisAddin.cs, do not overwrite this file but copy the methods from your old ThisAddin.cs into the new file.
