Outlook 2016 with Exchange account
Posted 2017-12-09 08:44

I managed to install Microsoft Office 2016. Activation - OK.
Word 2016, Excel 2016 - working. Performance is choppy, GUI fonts looks weird, but it is working:)

The problem is with Outlook 2016. Wizard finished successfully - Exchange account has been configured, but unfortunately after that Oultook is not starting.

Error message:
"Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The path specified for the file C:\users\crossover\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\daniel.ost is not valid."

File /home/daniel/.cxoffice/Microsoft_Office_2016/drive_c/users/crossover/Local Settings/Application Data/Microsoft/Outlook/daniel.ost exists, but it has 0 size...
Normally Outlook at first start should synchronise all Exchange data to this file.

Someone managed to start Outlook 2016 configured with Exchange account?

Best Regards,
Rui Correia

HI Daniel,
I have got the same issue with an IMAP account, not an Exchange server.
Excel, Powerpoint and Word are running fine on my laptop, even if they are slower than Office 2007.
After having the same error you see, I have tried to create a new Outlook profile and then there is a crash with a backtrace : Unhandled exception: unimplemented function api-ms-win-crt-stdio-l1-1-0.dll.__stdio_common_vsprintf_p called in 32-bit code (0x7b43bc1c).
Might be related (or not) to this Wine upstrem bug fixed in Wine 2.20 : Bug 43810 - Playkey needs api-ms-win-crt-stdio-l1-1-0.dll.__stdio_common_vsprintf_p
I guess this will be fixed in a further release.

The error "Unhandled exception: unimplemented function api-ms-win-crt-stdio-l1-1-0.dll.__stdio_common_vsprintf_p [...]" disappears if you install the Visual C++ Runtime 2015 in addition to Outlook 2016. It can be installed via "Install Software into Bottle".
