Installshield 2015 Express does not register COM libraries on Windows 10

The same setup.exe that works with Windows 7, 8.1 and older versions of Windows 10 no longer works correctly with recent Windows 10 editions.

The COM libraries are copied to the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder in all cases, but on recent Windows 10, after installation, the program being installed fails saying that the CLSID could not be found.

Opening an elevated command prompt and using REGSVR32 on the installed DLLs resolves the problem.

The installer project is set to required Administrator for the setup.exe, and the UAT prompt is shown in all cases, but the DLL's are just not being registered.
