Outlook stays in memory

Hello all,

I'm trying to develop an add-in for Outlook but I have a problem: when my add-in is loaded and I exit from Outlook (2003, in this case), it stays in memory.
Moreover, if my add-in contain an ExplorerCommandBar and an InspectorCommandBar, I found 2 instances of Outlook loaded.

I'm using Add-in express version 2.3 on Delphi 6 professional, Windows 2000 SP3 and Office XP.
I tried with my own add-in and also with MyFirstOlAddIn example, and the behaviour is the same

What can I do, or what should I check?

Hi Alessandro,

I have just retested our MyFirstOlAddIn example. Works fine in my case.
Windows XP SP2
Delphi 6 Enterprise Update Pack 2
Add-in Express V 2.3.0.236
Office XP SP3 and Office 2003 SP2

Could you please indicate what Service Packs for MS Office you have installed. And can you send me your code for testing?

Hi Dimitry,

I use Outlook 2002 (10.2627.6714) SP3.
My add-in is very small and simple: an AddInModule containing one TadxOlExplorerCommandBar and a TadxOlInspectorCommandBar, each containing only one CommandBarButton.
By the way, I have the same problem with MyFirstOlAddIn example (\Add-in Express 2\QDemo\OutlookAddIn), so you should have the code.
Anyway, if you need my code, I can send it to you

Hi Alessandro,

How long do you wait before killing the Outlook process in the Task Manager? Sometimes Outlook closes slowly because it is receiving email.

Send me please the compiled dll of our MyFirstOlAddIn example (zip it please). I will test it on our test PCs and let you know about the results.

Hello Alessandro,

I got your DLL, thanks. Could you please rebuild the DLL with the "Build with runtime packages" option turned OFF (see the Project -> Options -> Packages dialog box) and resend the DLL to me again. The point is that our test PCs do not have Delphi installed at all.

Also, on my work PC the add-in you sent works fine, so I have some more questions:
Do you use MS Word as a default email editor? Do you have other COM Add-ins installed in your Outlook?

no, and also Outlook is not my default email client (I use Outlook Express)

Do you have other COM Add-ins installed in your Outlook?


No, I tried to install only your Add-in

Hi Alessandro,

I received a new DLL from you and it works on our test PC with Outlook XP SP3. I will test our demo project under a fresh copy of Windows 2000 and Outlook 2003. Could you please give me as much information as possible about your software installed. I think you'd better send this information via email.
