Outlook 2010 can't open msg files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ihave made an file association for *.msg files but when I click on a file I get this error: The command line argument is not valid. Verify the switch you are using

    Is this something special on msg files?

  • I had the same issue and corrected it by adding /f "%1" to the Parameters of the &Open Action.

  • Hello,

    Any reason the .msg-file assocation wasn't captured during sequencing?

    If you have to set it up manually I would advise to compare the options from the one you setup to a computer with a file assocation setup from the installation.

  • Hello,

    I am not really sure what that means?

    Did you set it up manually on the sequencer, or did you create it manually on after monitoring?

    Is whats captured the same thing as whats setup when its working?

    Have you compared how it works on a manually setup client vs whats actually configured within your package?

  • hi eniac,

    how did you sequence outlook 2010? is it by using the recepie? if you havent used the recepie you may also want to use it to seequence it and then make a file association.

  • Thanks! This worked for me on Windows XP 64-bit with Outlook 2010 on App-V.

    "C:\WINNT\CCM\VappLauncher.exe" /launch "Microsoft Outlook 2010 14.0" /f "%1"
