Deploying Office Solutions with a Setup Project (Mary Lee)

  • Comments 6

You can now read the long awaited whitepapers about deploying Office 2007 solutions with a Visual Studio 2008 Setup project to create a Windows Installer package.  These whitepapers show you how to complete the following tasks:

  • Configure prerequisites: .NET Framework 3.5, the VSTO 3.0 runtime, and the Office primary interop assemblies.
  • Add the project output and manifests to the Setup project.
  • Create registry keys to load an application-level add-in.
  • Sign the solution with a known and trusted certificate, use the ClickOnce prompt, or create an inclusion list entry to grant trust to your solution.
  • Deploy additional components such as helper assemblies.
  • Update document-level solutions to separate the document and assembly in separate locations.
  • Use Windows Installer to install into the ClickOnce offline cache.
  • Modify the Setup project for Vista.
