Changing Word references in VB.net project

Hello,

I have created an application which generates a word document.

In my project references I have Microsoft Word 14.0 Object Library.

The app works fine on my development machine, which has Office 2013 installed.  If I transfer the app to system with Office 2010 on I get the error "Could not load file or assembly Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word, Version=15.0.0.0.

Please could you tell me the adjustments I need to make the app 2010 compatible.  

Thanks.

the best thing you can do is not reference Office but an external third party like http://www.aspose.com/.net/word-component.aspx to create documents

Hello,

Thanks for looking at this.

I actually used the MS example as the basis of my code so I'm not sure what to change in the references.

Sorry, in my second comment, I meant to use Late Binding. This way, you remove every reference to Office.

Check "Create an Automation Client That Uses Late Binding" from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304661
