After successful installation of all components of RemoteCalendars v6.3 the RemoteCalendars toolbar doesn't show up in Outlook 2003.
When checking the Add-ins in Tools/Options/Other/Advanced Options/Com Add-ins the RemoteCalendars Add-in is present, but unselected. When selecting the Add-in, it says "Not Loaded. A runtime error occurred during the loading of the COM Add-in."
I googled for the error and found this hint how to get more information on the error http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=818608&SiteID=1
It's described there to set VSTO_SUPPRESSDISPLAYALERTS=0 in your environment to get more information.
Having this done after re-strating Outlook and reselecting the Add-in there's a pop-up telling
Unable to cast object of type 'System.__ComObject' to type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.ApplicationClass'.
************** Exception Text **************
System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'System.__ComObject' to type 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.ApplicationClass'.
This MS forum entry http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1251545&SiteID=1
tells that there might be a new class instantion where there shouldn't, and indeed I found
_outlook = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.ApplicationClass();
in RemoteCalendarsController.cs, line 118.
Could this be a problem?
