Finally, made an Office App. Here are the Steps through which we can create an Office App and deploy the same.
Choose which app you want to create
By default, it will create 2 solutions,
- Manifest files
- Web application
At this point if you will hit the F5, automatically it will open Project Professional for you and under the Project TAB, you will be able to see the App which we have created just now.
But this is not enough, if you wish to deploy this App and Run this without the F5, you need to publish these apps to the network drive.
Deploy this app on the Shared Network drive
Right click on the OfficeAppWeb2 and Click on the Publish Button
In the package location you can write the folder name, where you want to deploy this package. And later this same package will act as your Web Application. Which will host your web application inside the IIS.
Preferably it should be under the https, if you are using Azure for the same purpose. It will provide you the https
Now, Try to access the web Page from the browser first i.e. Home.html In case it gives you error while accessing the same. See to that you have Web Deploy 2.0,
And if still does not work then use,add and remove feature and see whether you have latest framework available or not (Generally this happens if you have installed .NET first and then Configured IIS)
Go to the control panel >> Add and Remove Feature and look under the Application Development feature.
Open the OfficeApp2 >> OfficeApp2Manifest >> OfficeApp2.xml
Now, Right click on the OfficeApp2 and
you will be prompted with the following screen:
Now, Click Finish and It will automatically open folder for you.
Copy the File from the OfficeAppManifests
And deploy the same inside some Network drive.
Add App Inside the Office 2013
- Open the MSP
- Go to the Project Options >> Trust Center >> Trust Center Settings
- Select the Trusted App Catalogs
Once you click Ok, you need to restart the Project Professional 2013 again. Now we are all set to add an App inside the Project Professional
You will be able to see, Shared Folder Tab, Click and add the App
As you can see here, below is added app inside the Project Professional.
Hope this will help someone!! Feel free to leave comments in case it helps
