For some reason, Outlook periodically falls. What can you suggest?

Hello Anton,

You should start with getting more info: error messages, call stacks, log records (if your add-in have a log), Event Viewer records. If the crashes are regular, you should find the pattern.

Id the crashes are sort of expected in these or those circumstances, you can comment our blocks of your code to find out if they relate to the issue.

I assume you've checked that the issue belongs to your add-in.

No generic suggestion exists. "After" is too dim and non-specific.

You need to find out when this occurs, in what scenario and in what environment. You should log the steps your code executes to locate the issue. Does Event Viewer contain anything related to the crashes?

The last message we get in our log is that we exited the OnADXAfterFormShow method

Hello Anton,

Do you use threads? Async/await? DoEvents?

You can try commenting out blocks of your code in order to locate the issue.
