Outlook 2007 add-in error windows terminal server 2003

Hi All,

Network with 3 w2003 Terminal servers running Office 2007. By using load balancing the users are designated to the least loaded server. So everytime they log in they can be designated to different servers.

When starting Outlook users get the error that Outlook cannot execute an add-in. It doesn't say which add-in. Eventviewer doesn't either. After clicking OK Outlook starts normally.

The strange thing is: I only get this error once. When I stop/start Outlook the error isn't shown a second time. If I log off and log on again to the same terminal server, the error isn't shown a second time.
But, if I log on to a different terminal server, the error is shown again. Then it will not appear again untill I log on to a different server.

Sounds like something in my roaming profiles ?

Disabling the Add-ins doesn't solve the issue. Even with all add-ins diabled the error occurs the moment I switch terminal server.

Any ideas or advice ?
