  • Question

  • Two outlook instance not working. I have an application which has a utility outlook. Also I have an outlook installed in my system.

    I would like to use both the outlook instance in the same time. But now I am getting error message.

    Thank you

  • No, Outlook is a singleton - only once instance can run for a given logged in user.

    Why exactly do you need 2 instances?

  • Hi Saji,

    What’s the detail requirement that you need to start two outlook instance in the same time? How do you start outlook? Please provide the detail code.

    For an instance of outlook, we could add multiple account.

    On the other hand, based on my test with outlook 2013, we could start multiple instance in the same time. (just right click the outlook icon in the task bar and select outlook 2013)
