Outlook 2007 error The form region DPOfcX

    Question

  • Hi Guys,

    When I open Outlook 2007 or open an e-mail I am getting the following error. The form region “DPOfcX” cannot be opened.  The form region manifest specifies an add-in that is not installed. 

    I have check in the add-in there is no add-ins at all. I have check the exchange client extensions in there the add-in of nod32, exchange and SAP callender. in the disable add-in there is nothing. 

    When I start Outlook in safe mode the error don't show at all. What else I have done was to scan the computer with Spybot for malware. Nothing found. the computer is brand new got it on Saterday. When I search the computer for the  DPOfcx do not get any results. I have check in system 32 files and syswow64

    Any help I will be greatfull!

    regards,

    Gerrit

  • Hi Jennifer,

    I have solve the issue. It was not anything to do with any of the Add-in's of Outlook. I finded that the Hp ProtectTools Security Manager that was causing the the error. When I disable file protection on the notebook and open Outlook no error message and when I open an e-mail also no error message. I think there some how a conflick or Protection application of HP don't like the file or an issue with there application.

    thank you for you time!

  • Hi Gerrit,

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\FormRegions. Delete the registration for your entry for the MessageClass you are handling.
     
    Removing an addin that way does not unregister it or its dependencies. You should uninstall or remove from Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in the Control Panel, or by re-running the installer and selecting to remove the addin.
     
    If the form region registration is created as part of the installation it should be removed by uninstalling. If it is created later after installation, say by code, you need code such as an installer custom action to unregister the form region.

    Hope that helps.

  • This will solve the problem.

    Go to HP ProtectTools Security Manager / Administration / Administrative Console / Settings / Applications and there you disable Privacy Manager by unselecting Privacy Manager and then press apply. Now you don't have the Addin in Outlook and don't have this problem anymore.

    I did not have any file protection enabled and I have never configured HP ProtectTools so nothing was enlabed.

     

    Best regards

  • Morten.

    Excellent. I got the same issue on my HP laptop with Outlook 2007 and disabling the privacy manager resolved the problem.

    Thank you.

  • Hi everybody,

    Don't disable nothing !

    You have just to remove "DPOfxC" under the "IPM.Note" key and restart Outlook.

    Complete key is ...

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\FormRegions\IPM.Note

    Have a great day!

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\FormRegions\IPM.Note

    it seems to be solved. Thanks!
