Webcast: An ISV insight into Visual Studio Tools for Applications

I want to thank all those who participated in the second of three ISV Webcasts series I have been involved in. This recent webcast on the VSTA product and WinFX Add-in model, backward and forward compatibility, and other subjects was very well attended. There were well over a hundred participants! I had the pleasure of fielding questions and it was great to see the tremendous engagement by all those who participated. If you would like to view the webcast and/or attend the next webcast I will be presenting on the WinFX Add-in model, check out the link to my previous post by clicking here.

I promised to follow-up on one of the questions about VBA and VSTA. When I moved over to the CLR team from my previous position as the Development manager of the Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) and Visual Studio Tools for Applications (VSTA) products, we were drafting the VBA to VSTA comparison documents. The VSTA team referred me to the following link on the subject “Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to Visual Studio Tools for Applications (VSTA) migration solution for ISVs

Many of the questions I received around VSTA and the WinFX Add-in model are answered in my post on “FAQ’s: WinFX Add-in model and Visual Studio Tools for Applications (VSTA)
