Window's PowerPoint Addin frequently asked questions
Why is Poll Everywhere's location loaded from a file scheme?
Using file:/// is the standard for for developing VSTO installed addins.
If you use Windows Installer to deploy the solution, you must add the prefix [file:///](file:///) to the manifest path. You must also append the string |vstolocal (that is, the pipe character | followed by vstolocal) to the end of this path. This ensures that your solution is loaded from the installation folder, rather than the ClickOnce cache. For more information, see Deploy an Office solution by using Windows Installer. Note: When you build a VSTO Add-in on the development computer, Visual Studio automatically appends the |vstolocal string to this registry entry.
file:/// is a URI scheme for loading files from a local computer. Learn more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_URI_scheme
Our PowerPoint addin is a VSTO installed application. PowerPoint loads our VSTO manifest from the file:// URI scheme.
