  • How to detect Microsoft office power point 2010 is installed as 32 bit or 64 bit from registry?

    Note:- I have installed only power point tool from MS office instead of fully installed office.

    Could you please suggest where the bitness entered in the registry?

    Thanks & Regards

  • I found the solution

    In the registry path at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\powerpnt.exe

    we found the key "Path"

    On the 64 bit machine

    if Value of Path is like "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\" , it means power point 2010 is installed 64 bit version

    and if value is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\" , it means 32 bit version is installed

    Hence the path value contains "(x86)" means 32 bit version is installed else 64 bit version is installed

  • Hi Manish,

    Usually, we can get Bitness information of Office from:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Bitness

    Or

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Bitness
