Outlook2k3 Issues

Created: 24 Jan 2013 | 3 comments

I've recently received reports that the Outlook2k3 Addin is causing freezing issues on some of our associate's computers.  This can be temporarily fixed by disabling the addin.  However when they restart it has enabled again (I'm assuming that's how it's supposed to work).

 

Has anyone seen and resolved an issue with like this?

Hi Zach,

please refer below

Outlook\Lotus Notes Crash or Hang

  1. Check if the crash\hang is reproducible without the Endpoint Agent; in most of the cases the Outlook\Lotus Notes itself might crash.
  2. Turn off the mail monitoring feature, and observe if the hang\crash is reproducible, this would ensure if the crash\hang is related.
  3. Execute "tasklist /v" and save the output
  4. When Outlook crashes or hangs verify if the following registry entries are present
    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. Type regedit, and then click OK.
    3. Elevate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\OutlookAddin.Addin.1]
    4. Check if the following entries are present.
      1. "FileName"="otlk.dll"
      2. "FriendlyName"="Outlook2K3 Addin"
      3. "Description"="ATLCOM Outlook Addin"
      4. "CommandLineSafe"=dword: 00000000
      5. "LoadBehavior"=dword: 00000003
  5. Export the following registry details, which would help in diagnosing the crash.  This contains the details of the add-ins disabled by Outlook, because they had crashed Outlook.
  6. Click Start, and then click Run.
  7. Type regedit, and then click OK.
  8. Elevate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\[11.0]\Outlook\Resiliency\DisabledItems] where 11.0 is the version.
  9. Right click -> Export -> Specify a file name and location.
  10. Get the dump of the Outlook\Lotus Notes process.  One can use Windbg or Dr. Watson for generating the dump.

    Attach WinDbg to Outlook and create a dump file by executing ".dump /ma c:\outlook.dmp" in WinDbg.

    Attach WinDbg to Edpa.exe and create a dump file by executing ".dump /ma c:\edpa.dmp" in WinDbg.
