Package 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.
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.

Visual Studio Integration
Once the project is generated, Advanced Installer has a free extension for Visual Studio that enables future builds of the setup package to be initiated directly from the Office add-in's VS solution.
