_Application.CompareDocuments Method Visual Basic


 After using some SDK's, I have went and installed word on multiple computers. I could use the compare feature in word, but I have multiple documents 10 - 30 to compare. Looking to use _Application.CompareDocuments Method  to compare multiple documents and output a file with similarities. Is this possible? If so could you please help with code, I found some code on MSDN but I can't seem to get it to work correctly.

Function CompareDocuments ( _
	OriginalDocument As Document, _
	RevisedDocument As Document, _
	Destination As WdCompareDestination, _
	Granularity As WdGranularity, _
	CompareFormatting As Boolean, _
	CompareCaseChanges As Boolean, _
	CompareWhitespace As Boolean, _
	CompareTables As Boolean, _
	CompareHeaders As Boolean, _
	CompareFootnotes As Boolean, _
	CompareTextboxes As Boolean, _
	CompareFields As Boolean, _
	CompareComments As Boolean, _
	CompareMoves As Boolean, _
	RevisedAuthor As String, _
	IgnoreAllComparisonWarnings As Boolean _
) As Document
Dim instance As _Application
Dim OriginalDocument As Document
Dim RevisedDocument As Document
Dim Destination As WdCompareDestination
Dim Granularity As WdGranularity
Dim CompareFormatting As Boolean
Dim CompareCaseChanges As Boolean
Dim CompareWhitespace As Boolean
Dim CompareTables As Boolean
Dim CompareHeaders As Boolean
Dim CompareFootnotes As Boolean
Dim CompareTextboxes As Boolean
Dim CompareFields As Boolean
Dim CompareComments As Boolean
Dim CompareMoves As Boolean
Dim RevisedAuthor As String
Dim IgnoreAllComparisonWarnings As Boolean
Dim returnValue As Document

returnValue = instance.CompareDocuments(OriginalDocument, _
	RevisedDocument, Destination, Granularity, _
	CompareFormatting, CompareCaseChanges, _
	CompareWhitespace, CompareTables, _
	CompareHeaders, CompareFootnotes, _
	CompareTextboxes, CompareFields, _
	CompareComments, CompareMoves, RevisedAuthor, _

Is this a VB.Net VSTO or a Word/VBA run time environment?
