Outlook Crashes Creating New Appointment

Outlook Crashes Creating New Appointment

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.
