Currently I use Office XP in most of my add-in. Can I make Office XP the only version referenced by my add-in without causing problems in ADX?
it may be unhelpful, but it's all I've got...

Hi Roger,

Add-in Express expects your using Office 2000 wrappers. You can use Office XP types in your code but this requires casting the types provided in Add-in Express events because the Add-in Express core uses Office 2000 type libraries.
