Word version

In my configuration, i have Microsoft Office 2010, 2013 and 2016 installed.

The addin is registered in each of them, no problem.
But when i call the interface which uses the addin, the Word application opened is systematically the last version (2016).
How can i force the usage of Word 2010 ? Is this possible ?

Hello Jerôme,

This isn't possible if you start Word via Automation; these is because all Word versions share the same ProgID. You could try to start the corresponding WINWORD.EXE but this requires that you periodically check if the Word object model gets available. I've never done this before so I don't know what other problems you would run into.
