I am trying to build a microsoft word Add-in.  I have been looking at a kb article.

But can't get it to work? I am using Word 2000.

Not sure if my  capilib.c, capilib.h, wdcapi.h, wdcmds.h, wderror.h, wdfid.h, and config.h  have been modified in some way.  Anyone known where i can get hold of them?

There seems to be loads of MSN documnetion for vb & vba but for VC it seems non-existent.

Anyone seen any example of com add-ins for word in vc.

Any advice at all would be grately appreciated.

The method i talked about above looks a little out dated. 1995! Using Word Develooment kit! May still work, there is still a bit of talk out there about it.
So now what i want to do is create a COMM DLL - Add In

So I can tell word to load it at startup, subscribe to
events and add my own menu.

Thanks Again

how about - comaddin.exe

As I remember it shows how to handle a button - but with the other examples it should be easy for you to alter

> I want to support Office 97

try it - it shows how 2000 is autmated - 97 isn't much different - you have plenty of samples in VB - its just a case of converting them to C++ - the commaddin sample shows (or can give ideas) on how to do that - sadly I do not have 97 installed anymore - so I cannot investigate further
