I have a applicatie which connects with Word. Now we are migrating to office 2016 and will this app no longer work.

Previous I used the interop.word.dll
Now it should be (if google is correct)

The way of working is also different.

Just simple functions as opening and saving word documents are changed.

Someone experience with Office 2016 integration?

Thanks in advance.


What I have tried:

I've been searching on google for solutions.
The only thing I found is:
Dim objDoc As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Document
But I'm even missing the Word.Application

What version of Office do used before? What's not working? What's error message?
Please, be more specific and provide more details...

Office Interop should not be used in this day and age. Microsoft does not even support it's use. What I would recommend is looking at the OpenXML SDK for working with or if you are able to use a commercial product something like the Aspose suite will work.
