An issue where registry reflection was not happening while installing 32bit Office under the system account. This required looking into both the 32bit Office code and the Wow64 code where the registry reflection is implemented. When attaching to the Wow64 process using the 32bit debugger it’s like debugging a 32bit process on the 32bit machine; there are no 64bit binaries in the process. However, we needed to debug Wow64 to debug the registry reflection code. To do this we attached to the Wow64 process using the 64bit debugger which allows you to see the Wow64 binaries.
