Can't open Attachments from outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi experts,

    I have just recovered form the stop working error by repairing Office suit. Now another problem appears that I am unable to open an attachment in Outlook, the error message "Application Not Found" poped up.

    Can anyone tell me how I can fix this issue?

    FYI, if I save the attachment somewhere and open it from Windows Explorer, there is no issue at all.

  • Hi baron1180,

    Does this problem occur to all types of attachments?
    What's the version of your Outlook?

    Please try to clear the Outlook Secure Temp folder and check if it can resolve the issue. For detailed instructions, you may refer to the article below:
