    How can I determine which version of Office 2010 is installed on the user's computer: 32 bit or 64 bit.

    Can this be done by looking at a registry value? For this purpose it can't be done by asking the user so please don't suggest looking at the about screen.

    If you look at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\ Word\InstallRoot on a 64-bit OS you can tell. If the install path is C:\Program Files it is 64-bit. If it is C:\Program Files (x86) it is 32-bit.
