Installer for Excel VSTO Addin using VS 2017 - How??? RRS feed

  • Vraag

  • Please note: VS 2017 - there is no support for Install Shield Limited Edition. I have used it with VS 2013 and that installer worked.

    But now I am using VS 2017. I tried using the Windows Installer project that is available with VS 2017 (Note this is not Installshield). The installer goes through without error - but no addin shows up in excel.

    This link is not meant for VS 2017.

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc442767.aspx 

    Is there any way the VS 2017 Installer project can be used for excel COM addins? Or we have to buy a license for Installshield?

    Also, I checked the installation folder. It had the necessary dlls but there was no vsto file.

    The addin works fine in debug mode (from VS).

    Please help.

    regards

    Vinay
