On February 1, 2011, we announced the availability of version 1 of the Chemistry Add-in for Word, as well as the assignment of the open source project to the Outercurve Foundation by Microsoft Research and the University of Cambridge.
Any computer that can run Office 2007 or Office 2010.
Your computer must have the following software:
To install Chemistry Add-in, do the following:
- Close all Word documents
- Download the Chemistry Add-in binaries from Version 1.0 Release
- Copy the Chemistry Add-in .zip file to your hard drive
- Extract the contents of the .zip file to a folder
- Navigate to that folder and run Setup.exe, which runs the standard MSI installation wizard
- Use the installation wizard to install the Chemistry Add-in
To verify the installation, launch Word. The ribbon should now include a Chemistry tab.
To build Chemistry Add-in using Visual Studio 2010
, do the following:
- Download and install the Chemistry Add-in
- Download the source code from http://chem4word.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/changes/fc72c8656113
- Update the reference to Chem4Word.Font.dll in the Chem4Word.Addin project and point to the corresponding location in your local installation (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Chemistry Add-in for Word\Chem4Word.Font.dll)
- Build the Chem4Word.sln solution
- The Chemistry Add-in installer will then be generated and you can find it in the Chem4Word.Setup project
We would love to hear from you about the Chemistry Add-in.
