  • Preview Handler for Outlook 2012
    1 Posts | Last post November 13, 2013
    • Hi,
      I was able to build the sample without problems on a MS Surface Pro1 with Win8.0x64 using VS2012.
      After RegSvr32 either the Win32 or x64 version I was in both cases able to see the .recipe preview in Explorer.exe. That's great! Thanks for that :-)
      However I am wondering if / how it is possible to use the same .recipe preview handler in Outlook 2013?
      I have installed the x64 version of Office Pro Plus on the Surface Pro mentioned above.
      I mailed the .recipe file to myself and checked whether there is an attachment rpeview available in Outlook for this. Unfortunately it wasn't :-(
      I checked Outlook options, TrustCenter settings, Attachment handling, but the .recipe preview handler wasn't listed.
      What is required to get this working?
      Best Regards
