Wow6432Node AddIn HKLM Registry path problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Utility under discussion: Microsoft word 2010 add in using .Net3.5

    Target platform Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft Office 2010 professional 32 bit

    In Visual studio setup project i add registry enftries in HKCU as well as in HKLM. As per my research Addin to be made available to all users registry has to be added in


    but when i install my addin on target machine HKCU entries are correcrt so administrator can use the installed addin but for HKLM it becomes


    so when users logg in through AD they dont see the add in. every time i have to manually write enties in


    through server administrator account. Why is extra Wow6432Node added after Wow6432Node 

    please guide what am i missing.
