    I downloaded VC# Express and your project but for some reason, when I try to open it, it says "blah blah csproj cant be opened. The project type is not supported by this installation"

    What can I do?

    I feel -It would be helpful to add

    using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

    Thanks once again.

    I also get "The project type is not supported by this installation" if I try to load into VB 2005. I figured something that would work in Express oughta work in 2005 but no.

    Makes sense. Don't allow the people who paid top dollar for the flagship development tool to use examples or tutorials. Just people who downloaded the free version.

    Get used to the "NEW" Microsoft. All the baggage that used to slow down Sun and IBM have a new place to coagulate!

    Sorry Guys, looks like when this article was posted, it worked with Express but it no longer does!  It looks like the new versions of VSTO require a non-express SKU.

    From the time stamp of the article, it was from the first version of coding4fun so this could very well be over 2 years old.

    So, "Project cant load... not supported by this installation", "Me.ActiveExplorer is not a member of <applicationName>"... Does this mean that VSTO is only for the express edition. More MS garbage?

    If anyone interested, i have got this to work in VB2005 professional edition. Where it referenced:  _menuBar = Me.ActiveExplorer().CommandBars.ActiveMenuBar

    I changed this to     Dim myOutlookApp As New Outlook.Application  

    _menuBar = myOutlookApp.ActiveExplorer().CommandBars.ActiveMenuBar

    Also declare  _menuBar As Office.CommandBar

    ONE more thing of Importance: It will only work if you "Sing the Assembly" in Project Properties, Signing: Checkbox "Sign the assembly", create new, and give it the same name as the project, I think the password is optional.

    Please more sample code source using Outlook and C#.

    For example, get all address of Body Emails, or all contacts, or all contacts in Distribution List.

    Please, any application sample with code source, like MSDN Video..

    Please Microsoft, save us with code source !!!
