Find path to Outlook.exe

Recommended Posts

lavascript

I'm writing a script to configure Outlook via RPCoverHTTP for our offsite users.

(Unless someone wants to point me to a ready-made one that I can customize!)

Anyhow, I need to open Outlook and import a PRF file. I've previously written this in batch and i'm trying to convert it over and make some improvements. In my batch version, I'm finding outlook.exe with a series of

IF EXIST "%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE14\OUTLOOK.EXE"

IF EXIST "%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\OFFICE13\OUTLOOK.EXE"

etc., plus having to deal with 64-bit nonsense.

Now, granted, I can change this mess to a Case statement, but is there an easier way to open Outlook?

Thanks.

When using the OutlookEX UDF you can specify the profile to be used with function _OL_Open.

No, I wasn't aware of the OutlookEx UDF... Thanks!

But... looking into the code, I see that it boils down to $oOL = ObjCreate("Outlook.Application"). But that doesn't let me pass any command-line parameters, which I need in order to import my PRF file.

Suggestions?

You can run Outlook with ShellExecute("outlook.exe" ...) without path. This works without problems.

Holy crap. I love when we overlook the simplest things!
