Outlook 2003 Addin installed in Outlook 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We developed one custom addin for outlook 2003 and we deployed that, it is working fine.  Now, we are trying to deploy the same addin for outlook 2010 on windows 7 operating system.  It is deployed after doing some security changes.  But, it is not showing in outlook 2010 Context Menu again an e-mail.  Please let me know the reasons for this and give me suggestions, if we need to change the code for outlook 2010 compatability.

    Regards,

  • Outlook 2003 had no support for context menus, how were you working with context menus there?
     
    Outlook 2007 introduced context menu objects but for 2010 you should be using the new ribbon XML for context menus.

  • Thanks.

    We created custom context menu.  Because your response I did some investigation, I understand the problem.  We decided to build new version of Addins using Outlook 2010 object model.
