For those who wanted to see the solution that is built as part of the walkthrough, it is uploaded to OneDrive. Download and unzip the file, open the Solution in Visual Studio 2015 or a VS 2013 with the latest updates, and you should be all set! I recommend watching the video before downloading the solution, so that you can follow along in “the building of” before seeing the full thing.
The presentation covers the following topics:
- Introduction to Office Add-ins.
- Details around building an Office Add-in from Visual Studio.
- Tips on testing and debugging.
Watch the video today on Channel 9.
