VSTO & .NET & Excel

VSTO Online Support for Developers

Filed under: .NET & Excel, VSTO & Excel — Dennis M Wallentin @ 9:26 pm

Microsoft has recently revamped the VSTO online learning center which looks very good to me. The site provides information and knowledge about VSTO and how to use it to develop Excel, Word and Outlook solutions and also how to deploy the solutions. From my point of view it’s welcoming as I know that many developers are interested in VSTO but lack the basic information and knowledge about VSTO.

The startpage is available at Office Development with Visual Studio

The Excel section can be accessed directly via Excel Solutions with Visual Studio.

Perhaps these pages can make VSTO more understandable (and also get a better reputation) in the Excel Development Community? After all, knowledge is the key to all new areas.

Kind regards,



  1. Hej Dennis,

    That’s a surprisingly nice set of artiicles. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Not sure when I’ll make the leap from managed COM add-ins to VSTO, but I have a lot of reading ahead of me!

    Thanks Dennis, and keep up the good work…

  3. Dennis –

    Thanks for the links. These articles might be just what we need to help us get started.

  4. Yes, VSTO information was hard to come by, and scattered all over the place, this is definitely a positive step.

  5. Yeah… many developers are interested in VSTO but don’t have sufficient support/information on the rudimentary things in it.

    Really happy to know that Microsoft is renovating the site.
    Happy days to VSTO Developers.

    Thanks for the information Dennis!
