I am working on an installer for a VSTO 2005 SE plug-in for Outlook

2007.

The installer needs a CLSID for the plug-in. The plug-in is written

using C# and .NET 2.0.

For the plug-in CLSID I place in the Windows registry, do I use the

plug-in's assembly's GUID? Or, do I just create a new GUID and use

that one consistently? Or, what? ;)

What does the installer need a CLSID for? Are you talking about the

ProductCode and UpgradeCode GUID's?

Those are generated when you create/add the setup program if you're using

the VS installer. You leave the UpgradeCode alone to preserve COM

compatibility for updates and you change the ProductCode for each version

change. That tells Windows Installer that it's the same program but a new

version.

The value under

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Classes\CLSID\{....my class id }\InProcServer32...

and under

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Classes\MyAddInName\CLSID\{....my class id } <=

default value

I found the correct CLSID value... I am using the ProjectGuid value

from the VS 2008 C# project file.
