Microsoft Outlook: "Unable to Create Attachment"

I'd do further debugging on this, but unlike regular wine, I'm not precisely sure of how to launch this from a console to see what's happening.

Outlook has worked beautifully for me for months. All of a sudden last week, it decided I could no longer send attachments. I've run some Ubuntu updates, but lord knows what might have brought it on. I'm running Ubuntu Ibex with all latest updates as of this morning. CrossOver Professional 7.1.0. Any pointers on how to maybe get a look at the back side of this would be helpful! The crazy part is, I can't even run a Google search on "Unable to Create Attachment". There's no results! You'd figure an error like that would have been caused before, but I guess not....

Obviously, I can't drag and drop from Ubuntu, so I've been clicking the paperclip, then choosing the file. Immediately after I get the error.

Basic tech support suggestion - have you tried completely re-installing Outlook in a new bottle and/or Crossover itself?


To debug apps running in Crossover, you can use the following command string:

$ ~/cxoffice/bin/wine --debugmsg=[+debugchannel] --cx-log ~/Desktop/[logfile].log --cx-app [appexecutable].exe

Please note that this command assumes that the application in question is in your default bottle. If not, you can specify the bottle like so:

$ CX_BOTTLE="[bottle name]" ~/cxoffice/bin/wine --debugmsg=[+debugchannel] --cx-log ~/Desktop/[logfile].log --cx-app [appexecutable].exe
