Re: OLE Outlook XPA

Probably because XPA Studio (and its runtime) is run in Admin Mode, so it wont interface with an Outlook running in normal mode.

Start your Outlook in Admin and it should work OK.

Hi Group,

I'm currently upgrading a client from edev 9.4 to xpa4.7

One of the programs interfaces with Outlook to send email messages with attachments from magic via OLE.  This has worked perfectly in 9.4.

A difference I've noticed in XPA is that it won't work if I already have Outlook open, nothing happens.  I have to close outlook first for it to work.

Is this a known issue in XPA ?

Many thanks
