Outlook 2013 Signature

For some reason when clicking on Signature in Outlook 2013 the box that is suppose to come up to enter the signature does not come up.  Click the button does nothing, I have tried what was suggested in the following links with no luck in resolving the issue.

Have you tried recreating the Outlook profile as a first step? You may also want to try a repair or reinstallation of Office 2013 as well if the new profile doesn't fix the problem.

Don't worry about losing your settings, your settings and customizations will still be in place should you do a repair/reinstall of Office.

You may want to try a complete uninstall then reinstall next. Make sure you reboot after uninstalling Office.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi ManieyaK,

I hope this information may be helpful for you.

1.      Go to Start > Search an type in regedit and hit enter.

2.      Browse out to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{0006F03A-0000-0000-C00-000000000046}LocalServer32

3.      Right click on the Default key and make sure the value reads
"C:\PROGRA~2\MICROS~1\Office14\OUTLOOK.EXE" without the quotes.

4.      Close the registry, reboot and rey the signature tab again.

Here’s the two keys I had to modify: -

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\LocalServer32
and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\LocalServer32
Change both (Default) and LocalServer32 values in each to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\Outlook.exe

Mine were somehow corrupt with these values:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\LocalServer32
(Default) was C:\PROGRA~2\MICROS~2\Office14\OUTLOOK.EXE
LocalServer32 was ykG^V5!!!!!!!!!MKKSkOUTLOOKFiles>U3iokj@Ji?5v2bfyv=F,
and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\LocalServer32
(Default) was (value not set)
LocalServer32 was w_1^V8!!!!!!!!!MKKSkOUTLOOKFiles>tW{~$4Q]c@zPX6FxaTO5

Thanks and regards

Have you checked for any issues on the Signatures folder itself?

By default it is located in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures

Perhaps check the permissions and make sure you have Full Access to the directory, subfolders and files.

Alexa the registry path you supplied are for Office 2010?  I'm working with Office 2013, i assume this makes the key values different?

Alexa so it turns out the registry hacks you provided did the trick after all.

Thank You.
