  • Hello,

    Please deploy your add-in using Windows Installer. You can configure VSTO Add-ins to be installed for all users and create registry keys in HKLM.

  • For different user it was mentioned that use

    32-bit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE(32-Bit)\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\SampleCompany.ExcelAddIn

    64-bit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE(32-Bit)\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\SampleCompany.ExcelAddIn

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE(64-Bit)\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\SampleCompany.ExcelAddIn

  • Hello,

    The registry for add-in should be 

    Office version

    Configuration Path

    32-bit

    Root\Software\Microsoft\Office\application name\Addins\add-in ID

    64-bit

    Root\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\application name\Addins\add-in ID

    Please visit Registry Entries for VSTO Add-ins

    What do you mean "but for outlookplugin it need to be in current user"?

    If the outlook add-in has been deployed in current user, each user has to install it before using. Outlook would not load the add-in as it could not find the add-in for you in HKCU if you do not install. 

    If Outlook find the registry in HKLM, the add-in could be used for all users.

    Please use widows installer or other deployment tools to deploy your add-in and add registry entries in the HKLM.

    Regards,

    Celeste
