Hello.
In my msi-basic-Setup (x86) I have to find out if Office 2013 is installed.
I would like to start a system search.
Does anyone know what part of registry (key) should be looking for?

Any help would be welcome.

You can use the predefined search for Office 2010, then modify the the registry Key from "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\InstallRoot" to "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\InstallRoot".
You can also Change the property to store in from MSOFFICE2010 to MSOFFICE2013

That's all.

Hello Stefan,
this does not work.
Registry key:
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\InstallRoot
is not set by all types of Office2013-Installations.

Maybe you searched in the wrong registry path, try

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\InstallRoot]
"InstallCount"=dword:00000001
"Path"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Office\\Office15\\"

No. Click-To-Run Installation (same technology as Office365) does not write this key.
