On other MS Office version it work fine but some how MS Office 365 blocking the registry of my application. If i do manual entry of registry, it works fine but it is not sophisticated way. Any help for installation on MS Office 365 will be very thankful.

  • Hello,

    It is not clear how windows registry entries are added. Note, the HKLM hive requires admin privileges for writing. 

    Make sure that you did all steps described in the Deploy an Office solution by using Windows Installer article.
