Uninstall Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime

Post by jmt356 »

When I try uninstalling Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime, I get an error that states that uninstalling Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime might cause other programs to stop working correctly.

What programs might stop working correctly? Will it impact MS Office 2016 programs?
Regards,

Have you created COM add-ins for Microsoft Office? If not, yo can safely uninstall.

Do you mean a Component Object Model (COM) add-in? I am not sure. The only add-in I see in the MS Word Add-ins tab is Adobe Acrobat.

Did you program a Component Object Model add-in yourself? I would guess not...

Not that I am aware of. I believe the Adobe Acrobat Add-in was automatically added when I installed Acrobat.
