  • Question

  • Hi All,

           We have a web application and a part of functionality of it is to integrate the email search functionality. I am using outlook interop to achieve the same so that wherever this application runs on end user machine it searches their emails and get the appropriate results for them. Outlook is not installed on our test server / production server. But when we put the code in the test server i am getting the error mentioned in subject line. Is there a way to register the component without actually installing outlook on test / production server ?

    Thanks in Advance,

  • Not possible. Outlook code can only run locally, and it can't be run from within a service or scheduled task. It can't be run remotely, it has to be installed where it's running.
