[UK] Office and Vista Online Developer Launch Event - Get Ahead of the Curve

If you're planning to join us online for the developer launch of Office and Vista, here's some information to help you get ready in plenty of time. As part of the activities, we'll be giving you the chance to build a couple of simple applications to get some hands-on experience with Vista, Office and .NET Fx 3.0. If you want to take part, I've listed below the bits you'll need.

Build Requirements


      • Right-click the VSTOProjects node and select “New...”
      • Enter a name for your new code group such as “MyOfficeConfig” and click “Next”
      • Set the condition type to "URL"
      • Set the URL to be the full URL to the app.config file for your assembly – something like “C:\Users\username\Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\OfficeLaunchClient\OfficeLaunchClient\bin\Debug\OfficeLaunchClient.dll.config” – and click “Next”
      • Use existing permission set “Full Trust” and click “Next” and click “Finish”

That's it. If you're fortunate enough to have a scratch partition / machine to play with that's a good way to go. More information on the exercises will be published as part of the launch activity on 19th/20th January.
