Here are the links to the demos and the ppt deck from the session, “Integrating WPF & WCF into your Office Business Applications” that I did at TechEd in Orlando on June 4th, 2008:
The PowerPoint Deck with all the links on guidance on how to learn VSTO can be found here.
Demo 1: The Hello World demoed (that i screwed up on stage 🙂 ) on how to do VSTO and Excel:
Demo 2 on how to do a VSTO Outlook Add-in:
Demo 3, which is a VSTO Excel application that talks to the AdventureWorks Database
If you don’t have the Northwind Sample SQL Server Database installed you can download it from MSDN here or install it from SQL server DVD
Demo 3, which is the VSTO-WPF-WCF music application, can be found here.
(install the music database I used with the script here and make sure to see the note below to build your own)
If you want to build your own music database from your own music on your computer read how to do it from Brian Noyes’s Blog post here: http://briannoyes.net/2008/02/13/BuildYourOwnMusicDatabaseForDemosAndSamples.aspx
