OK, thanks - what I thought - There is a class in the app that is subclassing


And like I said, the 
Install(IDictionary savedState)
Uninstall(IDictionary savedState)
Rollback(IDictionary savedState)

Are all really simple - basically, for all intents, all it does is add some keys to the correct  version of the Software\Microsoft\Office  hive in the registry. As I know which version I'm installing (already determined in the installer) it literally is just writing some keys - pretty darned simple, and I can walk away from InstallUtil.

InstallUtil.exe uses System.Configuration.Install.AssemblyInstaller class methods Install() and Commit() / Rollback() so you can read what it does at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.configuration.install.assemblyinstaller.install.aspx
