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

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Word\Addins\myaddin.

    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

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Word\Addins\myaddin

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

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\myaddin

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

    please guide what am i missing.
