Client has Act Premium v16.0 and Outlook 2013 32bit.
Email integration settings are going very funky. When clicking an email address within Act!, while outlook is open, it goes unresponsive with an "Object reference not set to instance of an object" error. If outlook is closed, then it will work, opening a new message window. Quick attach and other ACT add-in features work within outlook while running.
I have tried all steps listed in http://kb.swiftpage.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/24350#s28
Many other troubleshooting attempts: running one or both programs as admin, deleting and rebuilding preferences files, tried re-registering redemption.dll succesfully (did not remedy).
Has anyone encountered this bug before?

We are experiencing the same thing with a new client running same software as you describe. In our case it is a 6 user site on Terminal Server (MS Server 2012 R2).
The odd thing is that sometimes it works, but mainly it doesn't. Our approach has been to concentrate on redemption.dll as we found it would be rejected by Outlook and that seemed to correspond with there being a problem. Also given that email could be sent from Outlook directly (Act! Address book) and attach to Act! with no problem.
We also find that a Windows Administrator account has no problem so then suspected permissions issues and group policies. But we coudn't uncover anything.
