what version of APP-V are you using? as it is possible to sequence an add-on for locally installed office in Version 4.6 SP1 or higher

what you would need to do is have office installed in the "Exact same folder" on your sequencing machine as your client machines, and you sequence a new program and choose an add-on or plugin, and on the application your plugin depends on and select the application executable (in your case Outlook.exe) this creates the dependancy in the application as the Full path of the outlook.exe as the dependancy

I dont think you can sequence an addon.. It won't have any shortcut and it has to be embedded in Outlook.

I think you can achieve this.

You need to have additional shortcut to it i.e. "Microsoft Outlook with XYZ plugin"

Steps to do it .


  1. Install the Outlook in the base machine.
  2. Then follow the steps as we follow in sequencer.
  3. Create a shortcut for Outlook (if you don't see it in shortcut section , create one manually).
