Thanks to everyone who attended this webcast. During the session at the end, I mentioned an action plan that you should follow if you want to start extending the user interface of Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Here it is again with the links behind each one:

  • Install 2007 Office System; 180-day trial versions available
  • Download VSTO (Visual Studio Tools for Office) 2nd Edition
  • Read the “UI Style Guide for Solutions and Add Ins” document on MSDN
  • Visit the “Office Fluent Ribbon Developer Portal” on MSDN
  • Look for a pilot application

You can also find out more information about the steps and tools used during the demo at the following locations:
