KNOWN ISSUES:

WPF + Office 2000 - 2013 Issues:

  • Various issues remain in all Office and .NET Framework versions caused by a partial incompatibility of the WPF core and Office GUI.

Outlook 2000-2013 Issues:

  • WebViewPane region cannot be used for folders if their WebViewOn and WebViewUrl properties cannot be modified. Possible solution is setting the "Allow Script in shared folders" and "Allow Script in Public Folders" options in the security settings. See the following article for more information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923933.
  • ADXOlForm placed in the WebViewPane region is flickering when switching between folders.

  • Add-ins containing advanced regions built on Add-in Express 2009 are incompatible with add-ins built on the higher versions of Add-in Express.
  • An ADXOlForm may lose the focus when switching between pages on Inspector windows.
  • Another form may become active when switching between Inspector pages if the forms were added to the same region by several add-ins.

Outlook 2010 Issues:

  • For the BottomTodoBar region to work correctly, either Appointments or Task List should be enabled in the ToDo bar options.

Outlook 2013 Issues:

  • BottomTodoBar region does not work.

Social Connector Outlook Add-in Issues:

  • In Outlook 2003 - 2013, advanced regions may work incorrectly if the Social Connector Add-in is enabled/disabled manually. Outlook should be restarted for advanced regions to work correctly.

Excel 2010 and 2013 Issues:

  • XLL add-in created for .NET Framework 2.0 crashes 64-bit Excel versions because of an exception in the Marshal.GetFunctionPointerForDelegate method.

  • Native Office custom task panes may not show up when a new instance of InfoPath is opened.

Office 2010 and 2013 x64 Issues:
