VBA script on a terminal server RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have created a VBA script which runs from a button in outlook through a macro. this works fine on a local outlook install but on a terminal server it does not. the script is looking at a TXT file and reading the contents but it reports that it cannot find the file (Runtime error '53': File not found)

    this is the line which reads the location. the email,txt file does exist. and as i said this works perfect on a local install

    Set f = fso.OpenTextFile(Environ("USERPROFILE") & "\temp\email.txt")

  • Ok news for you all the reason the VBA code would not work on the Terminal server was that the following DLL was not installed on the terminal

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\OUTLVBS.DLL

    To fix it was as simple as copy from a working PC to the same place on the terminal server. restart the server.
