C# Outlook Add-in - How to keep it enabled even if it loads slowly ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear,

    I have created an Add-in for Outlook 2016 and on some occasions it seems to load very slow and it disables the Add-in.

    How can I keep the Add-in automatically enabled, even if its slow, without the user having to go enable it himself?

    Thanks you.

    Kind Regards

  • Hi Unknownlifeformdetected,

    First solution is clicking the Always enable this add-in option in Disabled Add-ins dialog box.

    Besides, you could also set a registry value to force Outlook to always load the add-ins.

    You could go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Resiliency\DoNotDisableAddinList

    Right click on the right pane and then select New->DWORD(32bit) Value.

    Set name as your add-in name such as OutlookAddin1.

    Change value to 1.

    Restart Outlook.

    Best Regards,
