VSTO Assemblies on an Office 2007 Add-in - 10-09-2008 , 02:19 PM
A wizard generated VSTO project adds the following references to the project:
As parto of VSTO, there is also a Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v9.0.
Can someone please explain the differences between
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word and Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.9.0? I am sure
the interop one just wraps ActiveX objects for .NET but what is on the second
one? When should I use one or the other?

whether they use classical VB, VBA, C++ or managed code.
Tools.Word are the extensions provided by the VSTO technology. For example, VSTO
"wraps" bookmark objects present at *design* time, making it possible for you to
link a bookmark to a data set and/or the data cache. It also "streamlines"
coding in some respects (provides the bookmarks as objects in your solution
and you can use Bookmark.Text rather than Bookmark.Range.Text).
When you create a VSTO document-level solution you can use either or both,
depending on what you want to do.
