Release Notes

Users who don't care about compiling the sources on his/her own can download the compiled version. If you have problems downloading Setup.exe, use the zipped setup and unpack it (SmartScreen Application Reputation of IE might block downloading the exe file).

- .Net Framework 4.5
- Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (will be automatically downloaded)
For manual installation see:
- Installed Outlook 2013 (64 or 32 Bit version)

This version is now made with install shield and supports both, 32 and 64 Bit version of MS Outlook 2013.

You can also use command-line switches for activating / deactivating the outlook plugin without loosing any configuration. Just call BackupExecutor.exe with /register or /unregister to toogle the plugin activation.

Reviews for this release

Three times I tried to install (windows 7 64 bit Office 365) error message "Error registering Object reference not set to an instance of an object" with an OK button. Pressing OK the install fails. I would like to use this program since MS does not intend to replace is own Personal File Backup for the Office 365. I downloaded both the Zipped and Unzipped version to no avail.

This tool is tested and developed with outlook 2013, not 365. For the latter one there are different possible installation schemes possible (like online-version and office on demand via streaming). As i don't have office 365 I can't test the plugin, nor do I wan't to buy an extra license. The plugin itself is free. If you like you can contribute to the project and test the manual installation of version 1.2 and let me know which part is failing.
