I am still trying VS 2022 and did a clean install of Win 10 x64 Pro followed by MS Office H&E 2007 then VS2022 Community. Miscrosoft.Interop.Word wasn't installed and I had to copy the DLLs over from another PC. I had the same issue with VS2013 Express yesterday.

This has not been an issue before, has something changed?

    Hi @Jeff Gaines, 

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    Please open your Visual Studio Installer > Modify > ensure that the “Office/SharePoint development” workload is installed. 

    Then, launch your Visual Studio > right-click on your project > Add > Reference > add Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word dll. 

    Sincerely,

    Anna
