To extract the actual location, you will need to look at the particular addin's progid. This is a key name under SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins. For example, let's take Business Connectivity Services Add-In. Its progid is BCSAddin.Connect.
First you need to know its clsid. It is stored in default value of
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\BCSAddin.Connect\CLSID key. Its {9F787EA5-5EA9-4288-A7D7-A110E8A57494} for BCSAddin.
After that you can find COM server's dll location by looking at the default value of:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{9F787EA5-5EA9-4288-A7D7-A110E8A57494}\InprocServer32 key. In my case it's:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\ADDINS\BCSAddin.dll
This is the actual addin location.
