Onconnection event is not fired in Outlook

Hi,
Am using Com addins for office 2003.
Whenever I opened any of office applications(Word,Excel...) other than outlook,
after then when i open Outlook, Onconnection event is not getting fired(Comaddins not getting invoked)
Viceversa when i open outlook first then it invokes comaddin successfully.
Can anyone suggest solution for this????????

Greetings, encryptedheart !

Make sure you have all the latest updates from Outlook 2003. It is up to service pack 2 and hotfixes.

If you have not already done so, uninstall Onconnection addin. Restart Outlook. Make sure in Comm Addin that it is uninstalled. Then reinstall the Onconnection addin.

Best wishes!

Hi,
Service Pack2 already been installed.
Same code works fine for all other office applications(Word,Excel,Frontpage) except Outlook.
When i tried to open Excel/Word, it invokes Outlook in the process. I think this might be the prob.
So as i told u before when i open outlook first, it invokes all events of the IDextensibility2 interface,
but when i open any other office applications first then i open outlook no event fired.
as in the background process outlook invoking when word or excel is invoking.

In Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Mail Format. Uncheck MS Word as editor. Close Outlook. Now test again.

as per my understanding if the option MS Word as editor is checked then whenever we open outlook it'll invoke MSword. But things happening here is in reverse way... Like whenever i open Word or excel or frontpage it invokes outlook in the silent process. this point i dint understand.

Check the addins to see what is opening Outlook when Word is open.  In Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or Comm Addins.  Disable any addins that has to do with Word or Excel.
