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 â€“ 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 Andrewâ€™s blog here). We cover ClickOnce, MSI and SharePoint scenarios. However, we only have time to demo the ClickOnce and SharePoint scenarios. Iâ€™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 heâ€™s the reason! And if thereâ€™s excessive woffle or mistakes, then thatâ€™d be my input :-)
I hope this helps.
Iâ€™m always keen to improve my demos and presentations. If you have any advice or feedback Iâ€™d love to hear it. In fact I might try to organise a little prize for the best bit of feedbackâ€¦ please leave comment against this post.
(UPDATE: Hereâ€™s the Deployment via SharePoint screencast)
