Getting started

This question is answered

I recently tried to start using this feature to advertise but when I tried to install the software, I got the following error message:

from: http://advertising.microsoft.com/wwdocs/user/en-us/advertise/add-in/files/MicrosoftAdvertising Intelligence.vsto

The expected element "addin" was not found in the XML.

*****************************Exception Text ****************************

Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Deployment.InvalidManifestException: The expected element "addin" was not found in the XML.

  at Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Deployment.ApplicationManifest.FromXml(Stringmanifest, Boolean validate)

  at Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Deployement.ApplicationManifest..ctor(Stringmanifest, Boolean validate)

  at Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Deployment.ClickOnceAddinDeploymentManager.InstallAddin()"

 

Being brand new to this type of computer use, I can't find for myself what the above strings mean, or even where to start.  I do have office 2007 installed with Excel and Word and others but am stuck at where to go from here. 
Can anyone help?
