    Best place to be asking that question is in teh forum devoted to Outlook development and when you pse the question there, provide a little more detail about your existing program's code base along with some very simple things like "how do you determine what version of Outlook is installed etc"

  • Hi,

    As this is about the code, I've moved this thread to the Outlook for Developers forum.

  • Hi bthumber,

    I think it depends on the code that need to be modified, if you have too many code to modify, then the better way is that you could rewrite the application.

    There are some articles about changes of outlook that can help you:
