Filemaker 13 and Outlook 2013 - Any Windows Users out there.

I have an ongoing problem with Filemaker 13 and Microsoft Outlook 2013.

 

When I try to use the Send Mail (Send via email client) command both Filemaker and Office freeze with the following messageFM 13 Error outlook.jpg

 

I can replicate this on my Windows 7 desktop and Windows 8 Laptop, which both run Office 2013.

 

On another laptop running Windows 7 and Office 2010 the Send Mail (Send via email client) command works perfectly.

 

So the problem seems to be between Filemaker 13 and Outlook 2013.

 

I think there may not be too many Windows Users in FileMaker Developer land. If there is anyone running one of the offending combinations, could they test for me please. Sending an email from the Contacts Template file replicates the problem for me. I have to try to work out if it is an isolated problem or a bug.

 

I cannot contemplate rolling out FM13 to my Clients until I can get a solution to this.

 

In the meantime it is back to FM 12 to sent out the December accounts.
