Outllok add-in throwing next error "The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)" if an user does not have admin privileges RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are developing an add-in for Outlook 2010. We installs our add-in as per-machine installation by using wix installer. It is already in production during long time on different machines.

    Recently one of our client reported next error:

    It happens when they tried to run Outlook. Very interesting thing that it works very well if an user has local admin privileges!!!

    Obviously, it is something with security, but what exactly?!

    Any help is welcomed.

  • try using process monitor to see where you get access denied or error returns and compare it to the same capture from process monitor on machine where everything works ok.
