Disclosure Management with Office 365

In this blog, I would like to clarify some questions on the Disclosure Management client (Office add-in) and Office 365


In the Product Availability – Essentials , the following is mentioned:

Please Note: Microsoft Office 2013, Microsoft Office 2016 and Microsoft Office 2019 are supported both under the classic Microsoft license model and the newer Microsoft 365 license model – no cloud features supported. The product Microsoft Office 365 (cloud) is not supported.


This has led to some confusion and questions which I will try to clarify here


Microsoft has used terms like Office 365 and, more recently, Microsoft 365 to use different things:


Office for the web

If you use this, you will start Office in a browser, and use URL

The application will look like this:

If you launch an application (e.g. Word), you will notice there are no add-ins

Also note: in the Task Manager, there will be no “winword.exe” process


Disclosure Management will not work with this application


Office 365 (on premise)

If you see Office 365 in the add/remove programs, you are using an on-premise Office version, with the 365 delivery model.


In the “about” you will see the full details.


The applications (i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint) will be installed in folders like:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\OfficeXX\  (32-bit)
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\OfficeXX\  (64-bit)

E.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\EXCEL.EXE

Note: in the Task Manager you will see the corresponding process (e.g. “excel.exe”, “winword.exe”)


Disclosure Management fully supports this application.
