Hi. I am unsure if I should buy Add-in Express Regions for Outlook and VSTO or Add-in Express for Microsoft Office and .net.
Is all the functionality of Add-in Express Regions included in Add-in Express .net?

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your interest in Add-in Express.

Add-in Express Regions for Outlook and VSTO is a set of components that you
can use only in an Outlook add-in project in VSTO 2008-2010; the add-in can
target Outlook 2003-2010.

Add-in Express for Office and .NET is a tool for creating COM add-ins in VS
2005-2010; VSTO isn't used at all; the add-in can target all applications
from Office 2000-2010.

If you use VSTO to develop Outlook add-ins, then Regions for Outlook and
VSTO is your natural choice. If your target is all Office applications then
the right product is Add-in Express for Office and .NET.

As to the functionality of advanced Outlook regions in these products, it is
absolutely the same.

If you need more details, please let me know.

Thanks, Andrei. One more question. I have already created a VSTO addin for Outlook 2010. Can I include the work that I've already done in your product or do I have to create a new addin from scratch?

Hi Paul,

Thank you for the details.

In this case you can use Add-in Express Regions for Outlook and VSTO with your existing project. After installing our product, you'll find a new item in the Add New Item dialog.

Please see the How to create advanced view and form regions with Add-in Express Regions for Microsoft Outlook and VSTO article and theVideo: Add-in Express Regions for Outlook and VSTO video for more information.
