  • The error message "the connected state of Office add-ins registered in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE cannot be changed" will occur when Outlook doesn't run with Administrator Privileges.

    To avoid this issue, start Outlook in Administrator mode by doing the following:

    Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Microsoft Office. Right-click Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and then click Run as administrator.

  • Is there a way to let a domain user active the add-ins? Becuase most of users they do not have the admin privilege.
