This is related to this question, which I am assisting with:
Basically, I cannot find the
assembly in my .Net references window. (under Project/Add Reference). I can't find it in Visual Studio, or the SSIS .Net script editor
I have found a file called
In the C:\Windows\assembly folder.
I have also installed the Redistributable Primary Interop Assemblies from here:
I am a vb 6 developer, not a .Net developer. I basically want to control Excel through the Excel object model and I do not want to use the COM objects directly.
My understanding is that I need to reference this assembly to do this.
Just another question: Is this statement:
equivalent to adding the reference to the project from the menu? I first picked up on this issue when the Import statement said it couldn't find the reference. Do I need to do both or would the Imports statement alone be sufficient normally?
I am using Visual Studio 2005 8.0.50727.867
I have Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0.50727 installed
I assume when I get this assembly to appear in VS, it will appear in the SSIS editor (which is my real goal)
