Installation runs everytime we start Outlook 2013 application in Terminal services...


  • We have just installed a new 2008 R2 Terminal session host server with Office 2013 for test.

    Until now we have 2 issue regarding this.

    1. Everytime we start Outlook 2013, it runs an installation (Microsoft Office 64-bit Components 2013).
    Is this a bug? (Office was installed in install mode)

    2. All Office 2013 application started from the RDWEB, starts in full screen, so you cannot see the taskbar on a local Windows 7 pc?

    Someone please advise me what to do?

  • The installation every time outlook opens happens also on Windows Server 2012 RDS terminal session host.

  • I'm having the same issue with 2008 R2 Terminal Server and Outlook 2013 32 Bit edition. Has anyone tried installing the 64Bit version to see if that solves issue.

  • Hey All,

    Experienced the same issue on WS2008R2 RDS server.

    Fixed this by adding the Windows Search Service under File Services when adding Roles, just as a side note I didn't add the C: (System Volume) to the indexing.

    Once Windows Search Service is installed, restart the RDS server, place server into install mode and start Outlook 2013.

    Change server back to execute mode and that's it.

  • Thank you, It solved my problem as you way.

  • Just a minor note:

    I didn't have to reboot after installing the search service.

    (I had already installed Outlook 2013 in install mode & rebooted).

  • Had the same Error.
    Installing Windows Search fixed it.

    Thanks Lyndon for the Solution
