We are converting to Visual Studio 2012 & MS Office 2010.

I am working on a app which has the following code:

Dim asm As Reflection.Assembly
asm = [Assembly].Load("Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c")

The problem is what do I replace this with?

I found this in the VSTO area in program files folder:


I can't just add this as a reference and load this as an assembly without the guid.  So does this have to be installed wher e the app runs to be able to use?  I'm not familiar with the program and was hoping to make only the minimal change and get the program to work as it has.  

My question:  What has to be done to use the 2010 version of the excel interop?
