Hi

Are there any step by step simple instructions on how to deploy Outlook 2007

Add-In created in VS 2008? The documentation I have gone through seemed

complicated.

Thanks

Regards

Shared managed code addin or VSTO addin? If shared are you using a shim?

Are you deploying any necessary PIA's and dependencies? If you want an addin

for Outlook 2007 that must be installed on your dev machine. If you want one

for Outlook 2003 that has to be installed on the dev machine (only 1 version

of Outlook can be installed). That will run on Outlook 2007, but a 2007

developed addin won't run in Outlook 2003.

I would very strongly recommend using a shim. If you don't then you're in

the same AppDomain as any other unshimmed managed code running in Outlook.

That means that any unhandled exception in any of that code, not just yours,

or a crash in any of that code will end up disabling all those applications.

If you're in your own AppDomain from a shim only your own code gets

disabled, and if any other application causes problems only that gets

affected, not your code.

For a pure Outlook 2007 solutiion you can use either a standard setup

program or you can use a ClickOnce deployment. With a shimmed solution the

ManagedAggregator code and the addin code aren't registered for COM, only

the shim dll is registered. It then loads the addin when Outlook calls for

it. You add the primary outputs of the ManagedAggregator, addin and shim to

the setup project, deploy any dependencies you need and make sure that the

registrations are set up.

For ClickOnce deployment you can review the material at

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/t71a733d(VS.80).aspx for lots of

information.

The Shim Wizard information and download is at

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb508939.aspx.
