Remarks

When you create an application-level add-in by using the Office development tools in Visual Studio, you typically do not use the AddIn interface directly. Instead, use the generated ThisAddIn class in your project. The ThisAddIn class derives most of its members from the AddInBase class. This base class redirects all calls to its members to an internal implementation of the AddIn interface in the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime.

For more information, see Programming VSTO Add-Ins.

Note

This interface is implemented by the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime. It is not intended to be implemented in your code. For more information, see Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime Overview.

Usage

This documentation describes the version of this type that is used in Office projects that target the .NET Framework 4 or later.
