Installshield Limited Edition with VS 2012 Deploy Outlook x64 Addin

Hi,
I am creating a setup to deploy an Outlook Addin using Installshield LE i have set the registry keys to use x64 node and using vsto 2010 but my deployment settings are ignored and the key is always created in wow6432 node in the registry so the addin is not visible unless i manually add key to the correct node in the registry. The installation has no errors but fails to show up till i do the above key change. How do i fix this. Please help.

I have set the registry in the setup to be "[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\MyAddin1.Connect]" but it still puts it under "[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\MyAddin1.Connect]"

KEY IS ADDED TO:
[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\MyAddin1.Connect]

KEY SHOULD BE ADDED TO:
[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\MyAddin1.Connect]

Re: Installshield Limited Edition with VS 2012 Deploy Outlook x64 Addin

Hi,

This is an expected behaviour of windows and is mainly caused because of the Registry Redirector. The redirection will happen automatically and is not the behaviour of InstallShield.
64-bit version of an application may use different registry keys and values than the 32-bit version.

For more information on this, kindly follow the below link:

Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.

Thanks,
