Hi,

generally the add-in is working fine, but one of our customers reported an issue on one of his computers. There, the add-in fails to initialize. Maybe you have an idea about what could cause the problem. I wasn't able to reproduce the problem on my computer. Here's the error log:


Exceptions:
============
RatioAddIn error (DoAddInInitialize): the add-in has fired an exception.
DoAddInInitialize: Outlook version is not defined. SetOutlookVersion.

Hello,

This exception indicates that the Add-in Express version used in your add-in isn't prepared to be used with Office 2016. You need to switch to using Add-in Express 8.X to solve this issue.

Your information brought us on the right track. It was a setup problem. An old DLL didn't get replaced by the new one, which already uses Add-in Express 8. We replaced the DLL manually on the customer's computer and the problem disappeared.

Thank you for the quick reply!
