Hi Lucia Lisdero,

In general  the dll you mentioned will be automatically  present when MS office was installed.
Are you referring to keep these dll in specific location  with in the VM?

@lulis,

Versions of Blue Prism prior to v7.3 included the Outlook interop DLL if you selected the option at install. If it's not in your folder, it's likely that you didn't select that option during install.

Starting with v7.3, the Outlook interop DLL is no longer included due to licensing restrictions. In its place is the NetOffice Framework equivalent. However, the be able to leverage that Outlook integration you will have to download the NetOffice version of the Outlook VBO from the DX. You can find that here. All of the action names and even the VBO name and object ID are the same, so you shouldn't have any issues with existing proceses that use the legacy Outlook VBO.

Cheers,

Hi @lulis. If my understanding is correct, you  probably need this dll to be present in 
C:\Program Files\Blue Prism Limited\Blue Prism Automate folder to execute your automation using Microsoft Outlook. Well normally its present in the same virtual machine where you are trying to run the automation. It should be present in the below folder path
C:\Windows\assembly\GAC_MSIL\Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook\15.0.0.0__71e9bce111e9429c\Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.dll
the dll file needs to be copied from the mentioned folder to the bleu prism automate folder. It normally needs admin access though.

Hello @ewilson, i tried to use the VBO for v7.3 but i received an exception: 
Internal : Could not create an instance of the code class because Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

i was trying to use the send email. the version of my blue prism is v7.3 for learning.

Hope you can answer this. thank you in advance.

@chambhaa 

Ok, so you're using the 7.3 Learning Edition. Couple questions for you:

  1. Is this 64 or 32 bit? 
  2. Are you using the 32 or 64 bit version of Outlook?
  3. Are you using the legacy Outlook VBO from the DX or the NetOffice version of the VBO? They have different requirements.

Cheers,

Eric

Hello,

1. Using 64 bit

2. I think im using 64 bit outlook since this is the new outlook from office 365

3. im using the NetOffice version.

Thanks

@chambhaa if you check the Blue Prism Automate folder (ie. C:\Program Files\Blue Prism Limited\Blue Prism Automate) do you see the following files: 

  • NetOffice.dll
  • OfficeApi.dll
  • OutlookApi.dll
