I cannot see eWay-CRM toolbars in MS Outlook

Description

There are no eWay-CRM toolbars displayed in MS Outlook, even though eWay-CRM installation was successful.

The situation can be caused by different reasons and conflicts not only in eWay-CRM but also in MS Outlook or even another software or procedure can be the cause. MS Outlook resolves these conflicts by banning these suspicious procedures, so eWay-CRM toolbars are installed correctly but not available at the moment.

Version

All versions of eWay-CRM

Difficulty

Low / Medium

Resolution

We are bringing you correction procedures for add-ins activation in all MS Outlook versions:

If these steps won't help, we recommend to reassure that eWay-CRM is not launched before launching MS Outlook. There are also general solutions in the end of the article and also a solution by editing values in Windows registry.

Note: Some versions of operating systems can have turned on the change control mode in PC (mostly Windows Vista and Windows 7). For successful resolution of procedures described below, you have to launch MS Outlook as administrator. Turn off your MS Outlook, then right-click its icon and select Run as administrator in context menu. Now, you can go on with procedures described below.

Microsoft Outlook 2003

Option 1

In the MS Outlook 2003, go to main menu: Help -> About Microsoft Office Outlook and select Disabled Items in the new window.

In the Disabled Items window, enable all items their names begin with eWay. Then, restart MS Outlook.

Option 2

If there were no items containing eWay in their name (as was subscribed in the Option 1), you can check the second way of the access to add-ins. You find in the MS Outlook menu: Tools -> Options and select the Other tab and in the top part of your selection, click the Advanced options button.

Click the COM Add-Ins button in the new window and mark all the add-ins with eWay in the list. Confirm your selection and then restart MS Outlook.

Please, draw attention that MS Outlook 2003 cannot work properly with these add-ins in all circumstances and it could happen that you won't be able to manage these add-ins at all. In that case, the only way is working with Windows registry that is recommended only to experienced users. If you have difficulties with eWay-CRM add-ins in MS Outlook 2003, please contact us.

Option 4

The previous option can be used, if the add-in can be activated. But there is also an option that you won't be able to activate the add-in at all. There are two ways of dealing with this issue:

The issue can be caused by incorrect installation of some part of Microsoft Office or by collision with the older version of the suite that increases the functionality of the newer version. If the activation of add-in is not possible, go to the article: General Solutions When eWay-CRM Add-in Won't Launch After the Start of Microsoft Outlook 2013 and Higher

In the case of MS Office 365, the issue can be caused by the specific error: System.IO.FileNotFoundException. If the log is showing this error, please follow steps in this article: eWay-CRM Add-in Is Not Loaded on Microsoft Outlook 365 and eWay Agent Logs Error

Option 5

Because the error could be in the Windows registry, we prepare for you a file that automatically edit registry to fix this error. Download utlook_2013_always_enable_addin.zip. Before launching the file, turn off MS Outlook. Unzip the file and launch it. The registry will be re-written and new start of MS Outlook should display eWay-CRM toolbars.

You will see this description under the add-in: "Not loaded. Certificate of signed and load at startup COM Add-in is not in trusted source List."

  4. Apply macro security settings to installed add-ins must be unmarked.

Other Resolutions

General resolution

This resolution can be used in the case that you remove eWay-CRM toolbar from the MS Outlook toolbar part yourself thanks to settings that is available by MS Outlook. If you want to display toolbar again, go to View -> Toolbars and mark eWay Modules and eWay Standard.

Editing values in Windows registry

If procedures described above won't help, you can edit MS Outlook add-ins in the Windows registry. This part of the article will show you the process. If you will edit the registry values manually, you need to be very careful - an unintentional change of other values can cause difficulties or malfunction of Windows and other software. Because of it, we attach files that execute needed change automatically.

The procedure of registry values editing differs depending on your operating system version and whether it is 32-bit or 64-bit MS Office installation. We provide you with instructions for all versions.

a) You have installed 32-bit Windows and 32-bit MS Office / 64-bit Windows and 64-bit MS Office

Turn off MS Outlook. In the Windows Star menu, go to Run application. Fill in "regedit" into the text field and confirm it by OK (the same result will be achieved by searching "regedit" in the search field of the Start menu and then launching regedit.exe). There is a tree structure in the left part of newly opened window and you need to follow this path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins

Under the last Add-ins folder, you find sub-folders with "eWay" in their name. Click each sub-folder with "eWay" in their name and check whether the LoadBehavior value is set to 3. If the LoadBehavior has any other value, double-click the key and change the value in the field to 3. Confirm it with OK.

After the checking of all eWay sub-folders you can turn off the Windows registry and launch MS Outlook. Toolbars of eWay-CRM should be loaded successfully.

Easier way: We want to make registry editing easier and minimize the possibility of an error. We prepare for you a registry file enable-all-eway-addins.zip that proceed all described changes in registry automatically. Just download it, open it and launch it.

b) You have installed 64-bit Windows and 32-bit MS Office

Turn off MS Outlook. In the Windows Star menu, go to Run application. Fill in "regedit" into the text field and confirm it by OK (the same result will be achieved by searching "regedit" in the search field of the Start menu and then launching regedit.exe). There is a tree structure in the left part of newly opened window and you need to follow this path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins

Under the last Add-ins folder, you find sub-folders with "eWay" in their name. Click each sub-folder with "eWay" in their name and check whether the LoadBehavior value is set to 3. If the LoadBehavior has any other value, double-click the key and change the value in the field to 3. Confirm it with OK.

After the checking of all eWay sub-folders you can turn off the Windows registry and launch MS Outlook. Toolbars of eWay-CRM should be loaded successfully.

Easier way: We want to make registry editing easier and minimize the possibility of an error. We prepare for you a registry file enable-all-eway-addins(64x32bit).zip that proceed all described changes in registry automatically. Just download it, open it and launch it.

Don't know what option choose?

If you want to find out what the version of your operating system is, right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties. Approximately in the half of the window, there is a subscription of your Windows type.

If you don't know the type of your MS Outlook, find the Help item in the menu and then About Microsoft Office Outlook (Office 2010: File -> Help; Office 2013: File -> Office Account -> About Outlook). If you have 32-bit MS Office installation, there won't be any specific information about it; if you have 64-bit version, this information will be stated.
