Can't connect to Outlook 2007
Posted on 2008-10-24
In my organization we are shifting mail platform from Lotus Notes to Outlook 2007. Because of that, I I need to create calendar appointments in Outlook that were previously created in Lotus Notes.
I am trying to run a VB Script file (.vbs file) with the following code line:
Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
When I run it, I get the following error on that line:
ActiveX can't create object: 'Outlook.Application'
I get a similar error when I try to connect directly from Lotus Notes 7.0.3 (in LotusScript, which is similar to Visual Basic) with the line:
Set appOutl = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Then I get the error:
"Cannot create automation object"
So, it seems to me, that there is some setup or configuration that I need to do to make this work. Any suggestions?
