|Im in need of some help.
I have VS2012. I have created a VSTO Word Template Project.
It has a few dialogs for choices and a Ribbon.
I have used Publish for the solution.
Clicking the template installs the customization, all ok.
I get a new document based on the template and then save that document.
Now a very real scenario is that the user then takes the produced document with them to Another computer and wants to open it there and view the file. Sounds like normal behavior to me.
However, if the template is not present the following message comes:
Microsoft Office Customization Installer
Installing Office customization
There was an error during installation.
From: <path where="" document="" is="">/template.vsto
Downloading file: <path where="" document="" is="">/template.vsto di not succeed.
Why in the World is the customization trying to be loaded when I simply open the document??
Normally if this was not a VSTO-Project, opening a document when the template is not present doesn't give any errors like this, can someone please tell me where I have gone wrong in asuming something like this?
The document consist of text and tables dependant on choices in the dialogs. I have added a ribbon to the template. Not much else.
I simply want the produced document to open to the user if the template is not available.
Im beginning to suspect I should create an Application Level Addin instead of a Document Level Customization? Even if I do that, and that would solve my issue Im still very curios to why its not possible to open a document based on a VSTO-template without the template, well without the error messages?
