Is it possible to integrate VSTA IDE within an application without installing VSTA SDK on all client machines? If it is, what are the necessary dlls that we need to register and ship with the Setup files?
The VSTA SDK does not need to be redistributed. Instead, you should follow the instructions for deploying the IDE and runtime:
VSTA redistributables are:
vsta20.exe (40 MB) should be run by installer.
expdbgsetup.exe (4 MB) run by installer for 64-bit machines only
