Turn off COM addins during installation of Office365. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am able to manually turn off the COM addin post installation. With the COM addin turned off, the launching of the Office suite becomes faster. My issue currently is finding a method to customize the installation file to configure the applications to not run these COM addins. Is there a possible way of doing it?

  • Hi,

    You can try to add a registry key to following path:

    software\policies\microsoft\office\14.0\access\security

    software\policies\microsoft\office\14.0\excel\security

    software\policies\microsoft\office\14.0\infopath\security

    software\policies\microsoft\office\14.0\onenote\security

    software\policies\microsoft\office\14.0\powerpoint\security

    software\policies\microsoft\office\14.0\publisher\security

    software\policies\microsoft\office\14.0\visio\security

    software\policies\microsoft\office\14.0\word\security

    Create a DWORD value of: DisableAllAddins
    Change the value to:  1

    Best regards.
