Hello experts,

I have recently buy Security Manager 2010. Previously we are using Security Manager 2005. Application deployment was working fine but issue start once we moved from Windows XP to Windows 7 64 bit.

Whenever we are try to send email we got error message

"secman.OutlookSecurityManager" COM object is not registered. ---> System ApplicationException The 'secman.OutlookSecurityManager" COM object is not registered. at AddinExpression.Outlook.SecurityManager.ConnectTo(Object outlookApp)

I tried to change Register property of secman.dll to vsdrfCOMSelfReg and vsdrfCOM. I also tried to register manually using regsvr32.exe. I tried both from C:\windows\system32 and C:\windows\SysWOW64. I am also logged in the administration account and I am running command prompt as administration.

I am building application as stand alone application so we have choose x86 platform in the deployment.

Hello Danny,

Thank you for choosing our product.

Please note that if you use the Security Manager component you need to register one of the COM dlls on the target PC. You can find more information about which dlls to register as well as a few examples in the Security Manager deployment articles on our technical blog, here is the entry point:

Thank you Renat. I appreciate your quick response. I went thought this reference article. Now,

We are able register dll but

securityManager.ConnectTo() method is giving me error. It is still saying that secman.dll is not registered. I checked the registry and found that dll was register successfully.

Can you provide some expert suggestion this?

It seems that you have 32bit Outlook on the 64bit target PC. Is it so?
Does your application work as a 32bit or 64bit process on that PC? (you can find this information in the Windows Task Manager -> the Processes tab, your application will be labeled as *32 if it works as a 32bit process)

Hello Danny,
If you deploy a standalone application (not an Outlook add-in!), make sure the bitness of your application is the same as that of Outlook, not the bitness of the operating system. That is, your application should be 32-bit if used for Outlook 2000-2007 and Outlook 2010 32-bit; it should be 64-bit if used for Outlook 2010 64-bit.
So, could you please try to compile your application with "x86" target platform? Did it help?

You can also configure the CorFlags section of the header of your portable executable image and sets the 32BIT flag. Please read the following article on our technical blog:
