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. 

    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.
