'Data file check in progress...'

Has anyone else noticed that Outlook 2007 seems to have changed it's shutdown behaviour.

We seem to get a lot more new reports that Outlook 2007 is not shutting down cleanly now and showing the 'Data file check in progress...' the next time it is started. Our add-in hasn't changed, so I wonder if it's a Microsoft update?

Anyone else seen this, and anyone got any ideas on how to improve this?

PS The common 'tip' to avoid this seems to be as follows:

'The suggestion about setting Outlook to "perform an automatic send and receive upon exiting" solved the problem for me (running Outlook 2007 on Windows XP). Go to Tools->Options, then click the "Mail Setup" tab and then the "Send/Receive" button, then check the box that says "Perform an automatic send/receive when exiting."'

Hi David.

I don't get this issue in Outlook 2007 running under Vista.
Anyway I would advise you to debug your add-in in Outlook 2007 with all the latest updates installed.

Hi David and Hannes,

I have the same issue on Outlook 2003. It started long before I installed Outlook Connector. I believe that the problem was in an add-in I wrote some time ago. I've revised the code by adding a fair number of calls to Marshal.ReleaseComObject. Let's wait some time and see what happens next.
