How Do I: Deploy Document-Level Office 2007 Solutions with Windows Installer? (Mary Lee)

  • Comments 4

In Deploying an Office solution using Windows Installer, you read how to deploy document-level Office 2007 solutions with Windows Installer.  As a follow up, you can now see how to add a Setup project to your VSTO solution and add a custom action to update custom document properties. This example uses Excel 2007, but you can apply these principles to any document-level customization.

  • Hi,

      I created a word 2007 Document template project in vs2008.  I created a custom ribbon with some controls.  Then I created a setup project and added the above project to the primary output section.  I run this setup file from my local machine and everything works fine.  I am able to see my customized ribbon tab when opening that word document.

      The same procedure I followed in a remote machine in the network.  It installed successfully and the word document opened.  My custom ribbon got created along with my controls.  But the issues are:

    1. The label of the ribbon tab doesn't show up

    2. Inside my custom ribbon I am having a dropdown list, which takes values from a SharePoint list.  But it’s not populating those values from the SharePoint list.  

    Thanks for your valuable suggestions in advance
