Extend Office from prototype to release in record time.

Use a set of Office-specific solution templates, wizards, visual designers and components to build various types of application-level extensions including Office COM Add-ins, Outlook plug-ins, Excel XLL, Automation add-ins, RTD servers and Smart tags.

Write one code base to support all Office versions.

Write one code base to support all Office versions.

With support for version-independent extensions, there is no longer a need to create multiple version-specific projects. You create one project, one setup scenario and one code base compatible with all versions of Microsoft Office. You write a single code base to support all versions of Microsoft Office, from 2003 to 2016. No application-specific solutions, no version-specific projects, no shared assemblies. Selective version-neutrality. All you need to do is specify the minimum version of Microsoft Office you want to support. For example, you can choose Office 2003 and your add-in will work in Microsoft Office 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016.
