Smart Tags and the .NET Framework 2.0

Posted in Office at Wednesday, 02 November 2005 19:36 W. Europe Standard Time

In my previous post on the development of my first Smart Tags I suspected the .NET Framework 2.0 beta bits to break Smart Tag functionality in Office. Now that the .NET Framework 2.0 is released it appears that Smart Tags don't work either. There's a simple solution that I found when trying to fix that issue.

All you have to do is place a config file besides the Office excutables in %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office11. For Word the file has to be named winword.exe.config, for Excel excel.exe.config and so on.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
        <supportedRuntime version="v1.1.4322" />     </startup> </configuration>

This forces the native Office applications that host the managed Smart Tag to load specific .NET runtime versions. This apparently fixes the problems with .NET 2.0.
