As of last week, whenever I tried to create a new appointment in Outlook 2013 it completely crashed, forcing me to kill the process to get it working again.
I isolated the issue down to the Skype Meeting Add-In for Microsoft 2013. I disabled this and everything started working fine.
If you’re wondering how to do this:
- Go to File > Options
- On the left menu select Add-Ins
- At the bottom of the right-hand pane ensure that COM Add-ins is selected in the drop down next to ‘Manage’ and click Go…
- Locate the Skype Meeting Add-In for Microsoft 2013 Add-In and untick the box next to it
- Click OK
I generally recommend restarting Outlook just in case.
