Issue:

The below error message is shown when we try to create 'Office' projects in Visual Studio 2010. Experiencing this issue on machines where we have both "Visual Studio 2010" and "Office Pro plus 2010" installed.

 “Cannot create the project because the application associated with this project type is not installed on this computer.You must install the Microsoft Office application that is associated with this project type.” 

Solution:

 Office 365 version of office (Office 2010 Professional Plus subscription version) will not suffice the requirement  to develop a document-level add-in, we must install any other SKU of Office 2010, retail or volume license, on the development computer .
