PIA TypeLib Registration broken whe installing different Office Versions RRS feed

  • Question

  • In our scenario we have installed Skype for Business 2016 on Machines with Office 2010.

    This will destroy the PIA TypeLib registration of Office 2010.
    So our VSTO Plugin will cause a TYPE_E_LIBNOTREGISTERED exception.

    The Problem is described here or here

    As described in the first link there is a solution by manually patching the registry in a complicated way.

    The problem is that we are a vendor of a VSTO AddIn which is used on thousands of machines. So we cannot patch this manually.
    Also a Repair or Reinstall of Office is no solution for our customers.
    Do you plan to fix this with an office patch via Windows Update or is there a Patch for Office available?

    We also need an official statement from microsoft (e.g. KB entry), as our customers blame us for this.
