What version of Outlook/Windows are you using?  I tried it and it worked
fine, using Outlook XP SP2, with Windows XP Pro SP1.  The OP was Outlook 2k
with WinNT (French, but I doubt that makes a difference, or that you are
using French).

Only those reading the -dev list know that the 1.0a9 (0.9) release is there
(and those that have stumbled across it while looking at the sourceforge
site, I suppose), so it should be ok to leave it active rather than hidden.
This way at least those here can give it a go without going through
convoluted loops to get hold of it.

I get the installer setting it to

The installer does this for me, too.
