Hi there,

This can happen if the version of MS Office on the Surface is different than tha version that the code was originally written for.

What is the exact error message you are getting?

I am not getting any error message on the surface at all. The Outlook Icon just flashes on the task bar- When I click on it it will open and load the envelope and paste the form.
