Outlook process does not shut down after exiting Outlook when addin is installed and registered.

Any ideas why the Outlook process won't stop after exiting Outlook?
This only occurs when the addin is installed and registered.
The addin is functioning correctly (visually/debugged).

Thanks.

Oliver

Hi Oliver.

Try to look the code through and add the Marshal.ReleaseComObject() method whenever Outlook interfaces have been used.

You were right Sergey.

When you reference an Outlook interface in your thread (since this is a multi-threaded application), Outlook will never shut down.

So, instead of starting a new thread from the AddinModule, I open a new form, hide it and then start the thread on that new form. When all threads have completed, the form will close itself. And that's it. :-)

Thanks for your help.
