ADX 2007 addin for all versions of office (and ribbons in Office 2007)
Ryan Farley


I just upgraded to ADX 2007 and I am just starting to dig into things. Is it possible to have an addin that can have ribbon support when used with office 2007, and then normal commandbars when run with older versions of office? Or do I need to create two different addins (one with the ribbons for Office 2007 installs and another with just commandbars)? What happens if I have an addin with ribbons and install it on a machine with office XP or 2003?

Thanks for any ideas.

Hi Ryan.

1. Yes, it is possible in one add-in.
2. Nothing happens. The add-in will be loaded without any commandbars and controls.

Thanks Sergey, that is what I suspected. Thanks for confirming (and for such an awesome product :D )
