Deploying an Excel application level VSTO add-in via ClickOnce
If you are new to VSTO deployment then this simple little screencast (just under 14 mins) may help. It covers the scenario of deploying an application level add-in via ClickOnce to a network share, and then the experience a user would have installing it.
TechEd 2008 – Session DEV320: Deploying VSTO v3 Applications
In our session we cover all the security and trust issues around VSTO deployment (you can download an earlier version of the PowerPoint from Andrew’s blog here). We cover ClickOnce, MSI and SharePoint scenarios. However, we only have time to demo the ClickOnce and SharePoint scenarios. I’m planning on doing a screencast of the MSI process at a later stage (leave a comment if this is of interest to you).
Andrew and I had a practice run through last week, and I recorded the demo parts. The first demo is available now (below).
You can view it a few ways.
- You can view the Vimeo hosted version (or see below), but be aware this is lower res.
- If you want the original 1024 x 768 resolution then click here to view it (Recommended!).
- You can also download the WMV file (16.1 MB).
Acknowledgements: Andrew came up with most of the examples, so if you find the demo helpful then chances are he’s the reason! And if there’s excessive woffle or mistakes, then that’d be my input :-)
I hope this helps.
I’m always keen to improve my demos and presentations. If you have any advice or feedback I’d love to hear it. In fact I might try to organise a little prize for the best bit of feedback… please leave comment against this post.
(UPDATE: Here’s the Deployment via SharePoint screencast)
