App-V, Office 2010 and Ribbons

Updated 4th Jan 2012: And that didn’t work once rolled out in production anyway. Back to the drawing board. :-(

I explained how to use SuperOffice inside Microsoft Application Virtualization client in a former blog post. What I didn’t mention was that since we did that, we had a annoying problem with that. Every time a user started Microsoft Word, they would get a popup saying “An error occurred and this feature is no longer functioning properly. Please run Setup and select “Repair…” to restore this application


I opened a Support Case at Microsoft and we have been troubleshooting this issue for several months and today we finally cracked it. Doing installation of SuperOffice they register an Office Add on and register some Office Ribbons. They have “messed” up the registry keys a bit thou. Some things are registered for Office 12 (office 2007) and some tings get’s registered for Office 14 ( Office 2010 )

doing sequencing, after installing SuperOffice,
export hklm\software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\12.0  and delete it.
replace \12.0\ with \14.0\ in the reg file, and import it.

Now word will function again.
