Can TMO slow Outlook load Time?

On some computers running Windows Defender we have noticed that Windows Real Time Protection Service causes a delayed loading of Outlook Add-Ins (not just TMO). We are actively discussing this with Microsoft. You can try and add an exclusion for Outlook in the Windows Real Time Protection Service and then relaunch Outlook to quickly test if that is indeed the case. Please click here to know more about how you may add this exception. In the linked article follow steps 1, 2 and then jump to step 7 and type “Outlook.exe” (without quotes). Please bear in mind that this might render Outlook vulnerable to virus and other malware attacks so please do this at your own risk!

Does TMO generate any log files?

TMO generates logs only in case of errors. The log files are located in %AppData%\vi8\tmo\logs folder where %AppData% is the standard environment variable defined on Windows. If you see any exceptions there please do email us the logs at [email protected]. You may also find logs created by Outlook in the Event Viewer of your system.

I have some feedback. Can I send it to you?

Of course and that’s great, thanks! We would love to hear from you on how we can make the product better. Please email us your feedback on [email protected] or alternatively use the Feedback button built into the product itself to send us your suggestions. Thanks again!

How can I troubleshoot TMO load issues?

TMO generates a few log files in case it runs into problems. However there could be potential situations when Outlook refuses to load TMO. To see what is preventing Outlook from loading TMO you can either look at the Application Logs in the Windows Event Viewer or you can set up a system environment variable that forces Outlook to show the errors it is facing. To do this follow the steps as explained here to add a system environment variable with the name of VSTO_SUPPRESSDISPLAYALERTS and set its value as 0 (zero). Then close and launch Outlook again. This time Outlook should show you an error message detailing the problem it is facing. Copy that error text and please email us on [email protected]
