VB.net/VSTO Excel Add-in Running on a Mac


I have an Excel 2007 VB.net Add-in built in VSTO. A new clieny only has a Mac machine.
Will this run on Mac? Do I need to download any extra software to run this or will the relevant files be automatically downloaded on setuo?

It appears that you may struggle unless something has changed recently

Macintosh Excel ONLY allows add-ins created in VBA. Therefore it is highly unlikely that conversion of a windows Excel add-in will be successful.
