  • Help on Adding Registry Values

    Hi everyone,

    Few months ago I installed Office 2010 64-bit on my Windows 7 64-bit computer.

    It turns out Outlook 2010 64-bit is not compatible with Acrobat 9 Std.

    You can't attach an email within Acrobat you'll get an error message.

    "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client."

    So I waited and installed Acrobat X (10) and still the problem persist.

    It turns out the Acrobat uses mapi32.dll and Outlook 2010 64-bit uses olmapi32.dll

    I found a solution (I think) look at the link below.

    Pardon for being ignorant but ask you to add the registry values and my question is What type of values?

    String Value?
    Binary Value?
    DWORD Value?
    and son on...

    Please let me know how to add these values properly.

    Copy the text they stated into a text file. Rename the file to be *.reg instead of *.txt. Double click, say yes, done deal.

      Hi Wired,

      I did your suggestion and it did not work. It gives me an error.

      "Cannot import C:\Users\username\Desktop\Test.reg: The specified file is not a registry script. You can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor."


      Code:
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Outlook64Bridge]
      @="Outlook64Bridge"
      "DLLPathEx"="c:\\Windows\\winsxs\\x86_microsoft-windows-mapi_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_ab2397727b134496\\MAPI32.DLL"
      "DLLPath"="c:\\Windows\\winsxs\\x86_microsoft-windows-mapi_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_ab2397727b134496\\MAPI32.DLL"
      
      
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail]
      @="Outlook64Bridge"

      Any Ideas?

        In Notepad did you change the "Save As Type" to "All Files"?

          When not specified in a reg-file the type will be String Value (REG_SZ).

          The first line (line 1) of a .reg file should specify a Registry editor. For Windows XP and newer, use the line: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
          And line 2 should be empty.

          Code:
          Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
          
          ; The path to the mapi32.dll might differ on your machine, so
          ; search the dll first to get the correct dll.
          ; Important is to get the x86 Version, which is the old 32 bit library.
          
          [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Outlook64Bridge]
          @="Outlook64Bridge"
          "DLLPathEx"="c:\\Windows\\winsxs\\x86_microsoft-windows-mapi_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_ab2397727b134496\\MAPI32.DLL"
          "DLLPath"="c:\\Windows\\winsxs\\x86_microsoft-windows-mapi_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_ab2397727b134496\\MAPI32.DLL"
          
          [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail]
          @="Outlook64Bridge"
          To import registry entries from a file MyEntries.reg by script:
          Reg.exe IMPORT "\\server\share\MyEntries.reg"

          _
          Instead of using a reg-file for just the four entries you can also run 4 command lines,
          Batch:
          Code:
          Reg.exe ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Outlook64Bridge" /ve /d "Outlook64Bridge" /f
          Reg.exe ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Outlook64Bridge" /v "DLLPathEx" /t REG_SZ /d "c:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-mapi_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_ab2397727b134496\MAPI32.DLL" /f
          Reg.exe ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Outlook64Bridge" /v "DLLPath" /t REG_SZ /d "c:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-mapi_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_ab2397727b134496\MAPI32.DLL" /f
          Reg.exe ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail" /ve /d "Outlook64Bridge" /f
