Office 365 Installer - Detection Method

Office 365 Installer - Detection Method
When creating an application for Office 365 using the built-in "Office 365 Installer" feature, the application gets created with a default detection method that only uses the version.
So, if you create 3 separate applications (Office, Project, and Visio), or if you create Applications with different languages, they all have the same detection methods.
So, if you install Office first, you can't Visio or Project.
The detection method should include a product and language:

Examples:
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\VisioProRetail - da-dk
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ProjectProRetail - da-dk
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\O365ProPlusRetail - da-dk

    I agree. Seems a little silly this was built in in the first place. I have deployments for all 3 and when I install Project it tells me Visio is already installed due to the pre-defined detection method.
