Can anyone tell me why this code in Access 2010 won't run (and how to fix it) after Win10Pro 1709 fall creators update?

All of the other PCs in our office (for which the update was deferred) can run this code. File Uploaded.

Thank you Gustav. I searched but did not find those posts. I will try roll back the update on the one computer. As mentioned, I've deferred the update on all of my other PCs but I can only do that for so long. Eventually Microsoft will push the update outl. So I must find an alternative to this code because our office relies heavily on this ability to populate Outlook email addresses from Access. Does anyone in the forum have code to accomplish this without DoCmd.SendObject?

I don't have an alternative. But any other method will require a free or paid third-party component.
Also, this behaviour is most likely not intended, so it may be fixed in a not so distant update.

You can try Outlook Automation instead of SendObject. Here's a link to an excellent article on doing that (which includes a sample database):

Many also use vbMAPI (myself included), which makes this very, very easy:

I have no affiliation with vbMAPI other than as a satisfied user.

Thank you for your assistance, Scott. This is exactly what I was looking for. I'll block out some time to revise the code and test these alternate methods. Honestly, though, I am losing confidence in using Access as a front end. First with the introduction of the "what would you like to do now" in Access 2016 ... we downgraded the new PCs to Access 2010 ... and now this. What will Microsoft break next time they push out an update. Frustrated but greatly appreciate your help.

I think this sort of thing happens with all development platforms, .NET included.

Remember too that Access was never intended as a development platform for professional use. It was always considered as a Power Users tool. Professional Access developers took the reins and made it into a commercially viable (for the most part) platform, and Microsoft tried to accommodate that group as best it could. In the end, however, Access is an Office product, which follows the Office paradigms and practices.
