  • Hello,

    The forum is for VSTO specific questions. Do you develop a VSTO based add-in?

  • It looks like you are creating a class library project which needs a start up project to be set up. In your 4 project-solution, follow the given options, 

    1. Select the project which has an executable file. Console or other similar applications would do so.
    2. Right click on the project.
    3. Set it as Start up project.

    Now the project would be set to start up project. When you would debug it (Start) it would run this project as main entry program.

  • Afzaal,

    Typically VSTO add-ins don't require setting the external application to start with.

  • Hi wow cool

    Could you please tell us what kind of project/solution you've created so that we can move your question to the most appropriate forum? Perhaps if you told us the menu commands you used to create the project? File/...?

  • Hi wow cool

    That's not helpful. We need more information about the TECHNOLOGY you're using. I'm going to move this to a forum that supports finding the correct forum for what you're doing...
