Does outlook addin take its own memory space RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Does outlook addin takes its own memory space or  will it take the same space as outlook current process is taking?

    for example if i am dragging an appointment and cahnge event fires, will this run as outlook process or a separate process?

    Thanks

  • Addin code will run in the Outlook process space. Other code such as .NET framework code runs in its own memory space, so do any dependent DLL's and external code you might call.

  • All COM addins run in-process with Outlook. In addition, Outlook doesn't support calling into its object model from anywhere but the main addin thread, no background thread usage with the Outlook object model.
