HostVersion not returning correct version

Hello,

I'm using the ADXAddinModule.HostVersion number but it looks like it's returning an incorrect version.

I have Office 365 version 16.0.11929.20254 installed but ADX is returning 16.0.0.11929. Please let me know I'm using the field incorrectly.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Hello Jeremy,

Start Outlook, press Alt+F11 to open the VBA IDE, choose View | Immediate Window, enter the command below in that window and press {Enter}.

?Application.Version

That command returns the version of the Outlook application. Behind the scenes, ADXAddinModule.HostVersion calls the same property.

Unfortunately, we have to live with this inconsistency. Note that other Office applications behave surprisingly differently: Excel and PowerPoint return "16.0".
