Deploying Outlook addin in Vista question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good day!

    I created an Outlook add-in which I install using InstallShield, so the creation of registry keys is within my installer. But according to MSDN, the registry keys for the COM registration is different when in Vista. It says that:


    The user is running the Microsoft Office 2003 application with a full administrator access token.

    - or -

    The user has turned off User Account Control (UAC).


    The second condition can be check from InstallShield, but how about the first condition?

  • Hi,

    There is information about Office Component Check in this link: 

    InstallShield also uses Windows Installer as the underlying engine. Hope this can be helpful more or less. And I think you can post your question in forum which support InstallShield. People there should be more familiar with this field.
