Create an Add-in Outlook MSI with Add-in Express from a classic VSTO Add-in project

I need to create an .msi file to install an add-in for Outlook. The project already exists but I want to generate the .msi with the Add-in Express solution.

The type of project that was used to make the old Add-in was an Outlook VSTO Add-in project.

How can I generate the .msi file of my old project using Add-in Express?

Thank you for your help.

Hello Jean-Romain,

Add-in Express allows generating setup projects for Add-in Express projects only: in the Solution window right-click the Add-in Express project and choose Create Setup Project. Find more details in section Creating MSI installers; see the PDF file in the folder {Add-in Express}\Docs on your development PC.
