32bits addins usable in 64bits Office?
 
The article below claims that a 32 bits COM dll can be hooked up with Office 64 bits. One confirmed report found on the web ; problems with Word UI.
 
The following hacks are needed to get it to work:
 
Add a new REG_SZ (string) value to HKey_Classes_Root\Wow6432Node\CLSID\[GUID]
Name should be AppID and data should be the same COM object GUID
 
Add a new key under HKey_Classes_Root\Wow6432Node\AppID\
The new key should be called the same as the com object GUID
 
Under the new key you just added, add a new REG_SZ (string) Value, and call it DllSurrogate. Leave the value empty.
 
Create a new Key under HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Classes\AppID\
Again the new key should be called the same as the COM object’s GUID. No values are necessary to be added under this key.
