Office add-ins are added per-user so you need to determine where in HKCU the data's getting written and then author an MST which:
- creates the user profile stuff
- either a) alters the feature so that the feature containing the above becomes the parent of a feature which contains an advertised entry-point (in order to trigger self-healing) or b) if there are no advertised entry-points, creates entries for use by Active Setup (also to trigger self-healing).
Would the add-in activate when a user logs-on then?
No, it has to be put into HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
Which changes exactly have to be done for the .mst when I open the .msi with Orca?
It's too long-winded to repeat here. Google for John McFadyen's blog about self-healing and search IT Ninja, too. You'll find plenty of responses about it.
Oh and get InstEdit. It's Orca on steroids. For one, when you open an MST or MSP, it intelligently stays in the source folder for you to select the base MSI, unlike Orca which pleases itself where the Hell it opens for browsing. More usefully, it tracks linked entries in tables so if you make a change that impacts a record in another table, it will prompt you, unlike Orca which is quite happy for you to unknowingly trash an MSI.
