    Re: Outlook Macros (MSO2003/VB6)

    Outlook is a Single Instance App.
    Word is a Multi-Instance app.

    Does each use of Outlook have it's own ThisOutlookSession class?
    How are they named?

    good.
    it would have been rather difficult for msft6 to implement otherwise.

    Re: Outlook Macros (MSO2003/VB6)

    Howard/Jefferson/John:

    You guys are all WAY beyond my limited exposure...

    All I was trying to do is find a way to protect my macros so that if I crashed (re-installed) Outlook, I would be able to recover my macros.

    This had been a fairly simple process in Office 2000, but not, seemingly, anymore.

    If I'm understanding, though, if I export the macros, then in a "new" install of Outlook, imported macros should work fine.

    ?

    I missed a step somewhere: what DID happen to the digital signing that used to be part of the Office 2000 process?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Re: Outlook Macros (MSO2003/VB6)

    Yes, you can reimport the macros from the .BAS, .CLS and .FRM (& .FRX) files. Doing this has some advantages over copying over the OTM file.

    Regarding digital signatures, I am sorry that the answers in <!post=this thread,489808>this thread<!/post> were not helpful, but you didn't respond to some of the questions there, so I do not know if you tried to recreate your sigs the easy way, using the prompted defaults.

    Re: Outlook Macros (MSO2003/VB6)

    John:

    You're right: most of the time (prior) I was just copying my otm file over to my second drive, and then after (re) installing Outlook, I would "bring back" the macros to my "C" drive.

    I had read (Woody's book) that I could use selfcert.exe to create the sig, and then, using (?) I would transfer the signature to the Trusted Root, and then be able to apply it via the macro editor (digitally signing) and then trust all macros via "this" signer...

    But, first, I cannot remember what (?) Is, or where... Only works with Outlook 2000? Then, lacking a step-by-step, I was lost as to the process....

    I created the signature, and then using unkamunka's assist, I was able to re-construct...

    But I (sadly) am still not really clear on the process that would / could be repeatable when I needed it in the (near) future. It seems that either I am really fuddled, or that I was somewhat familiar with the process in Outlook 2000, and the 2003's process is different enough as to throw my minimal understanding off.

    Chuck Billow

    To save your macros, just copy the vbaproject.otm file, no meed to bother with export.

    Re: Outlook Macros (MSO2003/VB6)

    Howard:

    That is exactly what I had thought and tried... And it is exactly where I then started getting the security errors... Where my macros, which had originally been unsigned, had required signing to get them to work on the "first move", and after that, I am always getting messages that the macros are signed, and the signature is trusted... So then I create a digital signature, and then ... On and on...

    That's why I was just trying to find an "easier" way...
