Outlook 2013 repair after windows 8 updates every time
Posted on 2014-09-26
Has experienced issues with Outlook 2013 requiring a repair every time Windows 8 applies updates? This has happened for at least the last 4 or 5 Windows 8 updates and I just realized the correlation.
After Windows 8 (not 8.1) updates, I reboot, and the next time I try to launch Outlook 2013, it tells me it can't open and searches for a solution, then closes. I then re-launch and I get prompted asking if I want to open in Safe Mode. Choose yes, choose my profile (there is only 1), and it still can't open - application shuts down. Launch again, and I get prompted to repair it. If I say yes, it runs through the repair/installation and then it all works fine. Before I realized it correlated with the updates, I had re-created the Outlook profile and created a new PST file so I'm reasonably certain they are not the problem.
Thanks in advance for any solutions/suggestions to keep this from occurring.
