  • Question

  • I created a custom Outlook Addin and deployed it in my PC. I found it under the  "Inactive Application Addin". When I tried to add the from there I got the following error :

    Customization could not be loaded because the application domain could not be created.

  • Hello Rahul,

    Make sure that you have all the latest updates installed on the PC. Take a look at the following pages for more information:

  • Thank You  Eugene   for your reply. I explored the two post which you have mentioned. But didn't get any clue . The only thing I have to do is to check the latest updates are installed on my PC. Let try also that.

    Regards,

    Rahul

  • Hi Rahul,

    Which version of Outlook add in do you develop and which version of Outlook did not work? Based on the exception, it seems you deployed by ClickOnce, did you publish with File system or FTP site? To check whether it is related with this specific add in, I would suggest you create a new simple add in, and check whether it could be loaded correctly. And I would suggest you install this add in to other computer to check whether it is related with this specific computer.

    Best Regards,

    Edward
