far as I know, dsoframer is a history product and Microsoft
will not support it any more, since it has lots of problems.
To host excel and word in own application, but dsoframer
can't support office 2010, and now ms also remove the
download link for dsoframer. You wouldn't want to use it
Please stop using DSOFramer. If you are at home, bored and
need to develop an application for fun and for your own use,
then use DSOFramer but if you are going to develop a
commercial application, then please refrain from using it.
Too many bugs. And it didn't work with the latest office
anyway. Not only are you investing big time in bugs but you
are investing in sleepless nights.
I recommend using Edraw component for Word or the Edraw
Office Viewer Component. They have all dsoframer functions
that can easily convert your exist project. Alright, we get
it, dsoFramer is Bad. But that doesn't answer the larger
question of how to host all Office documents Excel, Word,
PowerPoint within .NET applications. It contains a standard
ActiveX control that acts as an ActiveX document container
for hosting Office documents in a custom form or Web page.
The control is lightweight and flexible, and gives
developers new possibilities for using Office in a custom
solution. Office Viewer Component is designed to handle
specific issues that make using ActiveX documents from a
non-top-level host window difficult, and serves as a
starting place for constructing your own embedded object
file viewer or editor as an ActiveX control.
an alternate solution, Edraw office viewer component hosts
excel, word like ole object, not extend office out of the
application. MS Office is not be embedded, I repeat not to
be embedded, not in a web page or on a windows form. It is
also a great solution for companies wishing to display
read-only Word document data and Excel sheet to their
employees while restricting modifications to the underlying
data. You can play the PowerPoint file in the same window.
You can also display password protected Word documents
without supplying passwords to your users - keep your
confidential data safe and secure! With the office ocx it is
easy to upload or download file between server and client
