Hi all,

I've been having a problem with a virtualised Lotus Notes client and launching MS Office attachments. Notes could see that Office was installed and would launch it, but would then ask for the product key as if it thought it wasn't registered.

I couldn't find much info out there, but after some tinkering with the registry I found that adding

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0 \Registration"

to the virtual app and setting it to merge allowed it to see the registration details and launch Office attachments successfully.

I presume this would also apply to Groupwise or other programs which want to launch Office.
