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.
