Beginner question

I am having trouble using the Excel component in VS 2005 Beta 1. I downloaded the latest release from this website, installed the .msi file, opened a VS project, added a reference to Aspose.Excel, but now I cannot find the actual component in order to drag it onto a form. I’m fairly new to the .NET world, so I think I may have missed a step somewhere.

Can someone lend me a hand?

Aspose.Excel is a non-UI component. So you cannot find it on the toolbox.
You can directly call it in your program. When you install the component, the sample code is installed.

Since you use VS 2005 Beta 1, I think you use .NET2.0. Currently Aspose.Excel doesn’t support .NET2.0. We will support it in 1-2 weeks.
