InfoPath 2013 – Missing Programmability Components (FIXED)

I came across the below error when trying to add C# code with InfoPath Designer 2013.   The MS Office client install does not offer a checkbox for VSTA anymore to install everything at once.  Instead developers need to go download those tools separately.  Oh, but the fun continues because I also needed Dot Net Framework 4.5 and Visual Studio 2012 installed.

After installing all three and running a Repair then I was finally able to write C# from InfoPath.  Whew!  Not as simple as the Office 2010 installer.

 

  1. Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2012
  2. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5
  3. Microsoft Visual Studio 2012
  4. Repair VSTA from Control Panel

BTW – All of the purple icons are confusing.   InfoPath?  OneNote?  Visual Studio?   Who knows!
