  • Hi,

    Thanks for your posting.

    You may examine the registry to determine whether your Add-In is enabled and its status.

    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK

    2. In Registry Editor, locate the following registry subkey:
                    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Office\Outlook\Addins\Add-in name

    3. Examine the value of the LoadBehavior registry entry. If the value is 3, the add-in is enabled.

    Check the add-in status before and after you enable it form Outlook, give us feedback for further troubleshooting.

  • Hello,

    you may find the required registry keys and create your own .adm for this, which can be applied with GPO.

    Or do you talk about preveting the start from other software then the ones you have installed? Then Software restriction policies or Applocker depending on the used OS versions are the way to go.

  • Hi ,

    We are using an application in the domain. That application is configured to work wirth MS Outlook. Now this application is getting disabled by its own and every time users need to perform the below mentioned step to enabled the application.

     

    Tool bar: HELP, About MS Office, highlight ( Application Name ) & click Enable.

    Now i want to implement a group policy by which i can prevent the software to get disable by its own.

  • I'm not sure what OS you are using but disabled add-ins in inm Outlook are stored in

    HKey_Current_user\Software\Microsoft\Office\version\Outlook\Resiliency\DisabledItems

    deleting this registry key will enable the add-in again.

    Unfortunately simply stopping Outlook writing to the key won't help.  I would say the add-in to outlook is badly written and need to be re developed.
