LocalServer32\LocalServer32 registration for Office Object.

Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows 2000 MSI' started by david epsom dot com dot au, Aug 7, 2003.

  1. I am trying to modify the behaviour of an Access Automation object by
    modifying the LocalServer32\(default) entry.

    This has no effect unless I delete or rename the LocalServer32\LocalServer32
    entry.


    Has anyone seen any documentation on the (CLSID)\LocalServer32\LocalServer32
    entry? and specifically how it applies to office automation objects?

    I have not found any documentation at all yet (!)

    So far all I know is that it is the LocalServer32\LocalServer32 value is not
    entered into the registry on (some) versions of windows, and that when
    present it overrides the LocalServer32\(default) value in some
    circumstances.

    (Later on, we expect to use more sensible methods of invoking the automation
    objects: at the moment we are using simple methods with modified
    registration)

    Any information or pointers will be welcome :)

    This LocalServer32\LocalServer32 entry is a Windows
    Installer Entrypoint and will be created through the
    Windows Installer Installation if the CLASS is created by
    using the CLASS Table.

    Please note that the DLL Loader had to be changed to read
    this key prior to access the component behind the CLASS.
    This change to the DLL Loader is not available in Windows
    NT 4 so the LocalServer32\LocalServer32 is created on
    Windows 2000 and Windows XP only.
