Hi there,

we migrated from Windows 7 to 10 and from Office 2010 to Office 2016. We use the latest version of the Add-in Express.
Now our addin doesn't work anymore. The "ActiveInspector" is always null and I cannot access the CurrentItem.

private void LoadContract()
{
Inspector currInspector = null;
AppointmentItem appointment = null;
MAPIFolder contractFolder = null;
MAPIFolder commandFolder = null;

try
{
currInspector = OutlookApplication.ActiveInspector();
appointment = (AppointmentItem)currInspector.CurrentItem;
.....

Hello Stefanie,

I suppose there's something in your code or in environment.

In what Outlook event do you invoke that method?

How OutlookApplication is declared and defined?
