Outlook 2016 PIA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have outlook add-in which works fine in Outlook 2007 /2010 & 2013 without any issues. Now we are trying to extend outlook add-in support to Outlook 2016, during this process of migration we are facing issues in compatibility checking.we need component Id of Outlook PIA 2016 on both x86 and x64 version and office 2016 shared PIA.

    Could you help me in getting the component Id of Outlook PIA 2016 on both x86 and x64 version?
    Sample code for 2010:

          strCheckPath += "\\MyVrmAddin\\ComponentCheck.exe";
                int iCode = CheckComponent("{1D844339-3DAE-413E-BC13-62D6A52816B2}", strCheckPath);
                if (iCode == 0)
                    iCode = CheckComponent("{64E2917E-AA13-4CA4-BFFE-EA6EDA3AFCB4}", strCheckPath);
                if (iCode == 0)
                     b2010PIAExists = true;

         <Property Id="COMPONENTEXISTS_OUTLOOK2010_X86" Secure="yes">
            <ComponentSearch Id="ComponentExistsOutlook2010x86" Guid="CFF13DD8-6EF2-49EB-B265-E3BFC6501C1D"/>

         <Property Id="COMPONENTEXISTS_OUTLOOK2010_X64" Secure="yes">
            <ComponentSearch Id="ComponentExistsOutlook2010x64" Guid="ECCC8A38-7855-46CA-88FB-3BAA7CD95E56"/>

    Thank you,

  • Hi, Elakkiya Madasamy

    From the use of “ORCA Tool” you can get the component id of outlook 2016. You can download and use this tool to get the component id.
