The identifier of the add-in package.


The new version of the add-in package.


The uniform resource identifier (URI) that contains the address of the update for the add-in package.


The UpdateClassification.

The address is a link directly to the updated add-ins for catalog add-ins or is a link to a webpage where updates of other add-ins can be downloaded.

The following represents the end-to-end process for how this API is used:

  1. The add-in determines through a self-implemented method whether a new version is available.

  2. The add-in calls the AddInManager.NewAddInVersionAvailable method with the GUID specified in the <ID> tag. The address should be a webpage where the user can download the add-in as it is not automatically downloaded.

  3. The user downloads the updated add-in from the webpage and installs it.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
