Creating registry to make Outlook add-in to register on both 32 and 64 bit Office.

If you are writing an Outlook add-in and want it to be able to register itself with both 32 and 64 bit without creating 2 different setup files, you could edit the installer to put a registry key for both.

Below are the locations for the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins
