Cannot launch Outlook 2013 on Windows 8

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


Recently, I downloaded and installed Outlook 2013 on my Windows 8 Operating System but I received the following error message when I try to launch this program. I have tried to reinstall the application but no changes were appeared. How can I avoid this problem? Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What happened:

WinZipAddin.Outlook.AdminModule error: the add-in has fired ab exception.

Where presumably this happened:

An error occurred in the code of Add-in Express .Net (MS Office) library. See ‘Details’ section to get more detailed information about the error.

Resolution 1:

You will need to check on Winzip's website for new patches, download them and install them. They should fix that issue.

Resolution 2:

If you do not get latest patches to download on winzip's website, you can uninstall it and then install WinRar which is an alternative that works very well.

The WinZip add-on for Outlook is making this issue. To solve this,

1. Disable the add-on. Go to Tools >> Trust Center.

2. Select “COM Add-ins” in the “Manage” section and press “Go”.

3. There, remove the add-on called “WinZipAddin.Outlook.AdminModule”.

Restart your Outlook.

Also, this is definitely the problem of WinZip installed on your PC. Update to the latest one.
