Outlook updating conflicts
Due to this, Outlook struggles to provide a smoother access to user mailboxes and can eventually end up “Not responding”.
In addition, the advanced security settings in anti-virus programs can also prevent Outlook in functioning properly.
When you are using a so-called traditional “msi-installation”, you’ll need to configure and use Windows Update to install these updates; When you are still using Outlook 2007 or previous, you may be able to install it on Windows 10 but there are various compatibility issues that you will run into.
These issues won’t get fixed since Outlook 2007 and especially Outlook 2003 has been out of support for a long time now which also means it no longer gets any security updates anymore.
There is no BCM version for Outlook 2016 and newer.Before starting Outlook or any other Office application, make sure you apply the latest Service Pack and updates first.When you are using Office 365 or a Click-to-Run installation of Outlook 2013, 2016 or 2019, you’re automatically being kept up-to-date.It provides great flexibility by acting as a connectivity tool for much professional software.However, such software or professional Outlook add-ins are not reliable and can lead to improper functioning of the Outlook.
End process If the Outlook is being used by multiple processes, you can kill the hanging process.
