Want to get rid of a nuisance message window that pops up on start-up; it is regarding Outlook and looks like related to ACT.
Recently installed Office 2010 64-bit, updated from Office 2007. Installed the 64-bit version and later found out that Act 2011 is 32-bit and cannot communicate with 64 bit Office 2010 Outlook. (Determined that when trying to track down the source of a message window that pops up on start-up of the computer.) The message says: "MS Office Outlook - Either there is no default email client or the current email client cannot fulfil the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default email client.”
Could not figure out how to get rid of it and, as will be using Office 2010 64-bit because of its power with Excel, Access, etc even though there is the inconvenience of no link between ACT and Outlook, decided to uninstall and reinstall ACT. Got rid of all occurrences of ACT in could find including the .ADF and .ALL files (turns out uninstalling ACT leaves a lot behind); and then on start up this message no longer came up. But after reinstalling, initially with a fresh data file, and the same message reappeared.
Have since installed the original database and intention is to forego any link between ACT 2011 and Outlook 2010 even though that is inconvenient – want to use Office 2010 64 bit for its power with Excel, Access, etc. But how do I get rid of this nuisance message window? And without a lot of hacking – there were suggestions on some blogs of how to connect the two, but am not going to take that risk as it involved a lot of hacking. Goal is to get by without a link until Sage sees fit to come up with a version that can communicate with Outlook 2010 64-bit, and for now get rid of this nuisance message.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
