XP64bit and Vista 64bit support for Outlook Express

Hi guys,

I was wondering what the status of the support for XP64bit and Vista 64Bit is for Addin Express for Outlook Express and if I need to do anything special in the installer to support 64bit platforms.

The installer runs happily on XP64bit without an error but the toolbar fails to appear when I start OE. No other obvious error appears.

The same installer works fine on XP and Vista 32 bit.

My IDE is Visual Studio 2005 SP1 and I am using Addin Express 2008 .net for Outlook Express V4.1

Thanks for any replies and if you need more specific info please let me know.

Cheers,

Colin

Hello Colin,

Ufortunately, there is no way to support 64-bit versions of Outlook Express and Windows Mail.

Is the situation the same with Outlook 2007 on 64 bits?

My project installs fine but the addin is not added in the Outlook add-in list. The message from the registration is that it is ok. Strange.
The OS is Windows7 64.
Any ideas? Is it expected to work or it's not supported?

Hello Vladimir,

Do you install the add-in for all users?

Vladimir,

Add-ins registered for all users are not listed in the COM add-ins tab at all. You are able to see a list of add-ins for the current user.

The other strange thinkg is that the reg keys are in curent user section. It is configured and working for all users and IMO the add-in keys should be in local machine, correct?

Hi Vladimir,

Is the UAC enabled? Please check up the UAC settings. It looks like the UAC is turned off.
