Add-in for microsoft Outlook which always minimizes the application instead of closing it. You'll likely need to first install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package. Then install KeepOutlookRunning.dll as an Add-in under Tools-->Trust Center in outlook. If you're using the 64-bit version of office/outlook, download the 64-bit dll instead.

  • Did work for years. since last outlook update i can't add it as an Add-in anymore. It is a shame it doesn't work anymore (or i am doing something wrong)

  • Im getting file not valid as add-in error, on both x64 versions win7 and office2016, I have uninstalled office2016 x64, and installed office2016 x86, and then I was able to use x86 ddl to keep outlook running. Thanks for saving me money and frustration. (on office2016 x64 run as admin did not help)

  • This method works for Outlook 2016 as well: jman642 Win7 64bit & Outlook 2010 64bit. Wouldn't work at first, but then I did this: Find OUTLOOK.EXE, right click, run as administrator, then File, Options, Add-Ins, Go.. button, Add... button and select the 64bit dll

  • Working well (Office 2013 and Windows 10 x64). Now so hard to exit outlook, lol :D

  • Works perfect. (x64 Windows 8.1 outlook 2013). You only need start Outlook with admin account to install add in.
