The Outlook.vbs file makes a connection to Outlook outside of The Raiser's Edge. This helps isolate either Microsoft Office or The Raiser's Edge as the cause of the problem. 

  1. Download OutlookVBS.exe and save it to a local drive. It is a self-extracting ZIP file containing the Outlook.vbs file.
  2. Double-click OutlookVBS.exe, select an appropriate directory to which to extract the file, and click Unzip.
  3. Browse to the location of the extracted VBS file and double-click Outlook.vbs.
  4. A message ("Connected to Outlook Successfully") appears indicating if a successful connection was made or not.
    Note: If a connection cannot be made, it indicates a problem with the Microsoft Office installation which must be first corrected and is beyond our scope of support.
