Outlook Addin with VSTO



I created a Outlook addin with VSTO SE. This project automaticaly
created a setup project.
All runs sweet in my machine.

When i install the addin in another machine it says that it can't load
the assembly office, version=12.

Of course it cannot load because the machine doesn't have Office 2007.

The client machine has Office 2003, Office 2003 PIAS, VSTO SE
Runtime , Full Trust in the folder containing my dlls.

The questions:

Does VSTO SE builds Addins supported in Office 2003?
What can I do to solve this problem?

If you want your VSTO addin to run on Outlook 2003 you must develop it on a
machine with that version and reference those PIAs. It will run on Outlook
2007 but won't support the ribbon or any other new Outlook 2007 additions.
You must also follow the deployment walkthroughs for VSTO in setting the CAS
security so the addin will actually load.
