Office addinPackage and Deploy Office VSTO Add-ins

With the help of Office add-ins, you can make solutions that improve Office programs by adding new features and functions and letting you interact with the content in documents.

Simplify deployment for your add-in users with a Windows 10 compliant package. Put an end to support calls for solving add-in registration problems or enterprise deployment related issues.

VSTO Add-ins Packaging and Deployment

VSTO stands for Visual Studio Tools for Office. You can use VSTO Add-ins to make document customizations, automate tasks, or improve the features of Microsoft Office applications.

Advanced Installer provides a dedicated wizard that helps package and install a VSTO addin. The generated output package can be either an MSI or EXE.

It only takes minutes to follow the wizard, import a Visual Studio solution and get the final deployment package.

Add-in Express

For add-ins generated with the Add-in Express framework you must take a different approach. The following tutorial explains how to build such an MSI with Advanced Installer.
