Apologies if this is answered somewhere else - all the information I could find related to the release candidate.

We currently have a 'Beta' version that supports VS 2015 RC. When will be have a stable version that supports the VS 2015 RTM, as released yesterday?

At present, this is the only thing I'm waiting for before I can make the switch!

Thanks

Hello Charles, Hello John,

You can use the 'Beta' with the release version of VS 2015. A release version of Add-in express will arrive soon after they publish the release version of Office 2016.

Hi Andrei

I'm a bit uncomfortable using beta software in production code. Can I install v8.0 Beta simply to get VS 2015 support and carry on referencing the v7.7 libraries in the solution?

I've tried this and it seems to work, but I thought I'd check I haven't missed anything.

Thanks

Charles,

I don't know. This wasn't tested. If it works then it's probably okay.

Sorry to come in to this so late - I have just ordered for office .net but would like to do my development in VS2015.

Does the beta work with the release of VS2015 and, if so, could I get a copy of the beta?

Hi Karl,

Yes, Beta 1 of version 8 supports Visual Studio 2015. Our sales department has emailed you a new license key.
