Outlook 365 - Desktop - Preview Handler

Post by WishesOnMainSt » Wed Feb 06, 2019 4:41 pm

Good Afternoon,

I am constantly having issues with the preview handler within Outlook not starting. In the preview window of Outlook, all I get is a message saying "Starting PDF-Exchange Preview Handler" and it just sits there.

Done the uninstall / reinstall to no avail.

PDF-Xchange Editor Plus Version 7.0 (build 328.2)
Windows 10 build 18298

Any help appreciated.

Maybe you should try the solution proposed in the reply in the following thread:

I.e. run C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\Shell Extensions\XCShInfoSetup.exe and select your preferred settings.

After that, restart your computer, and try again.

Hello All,

Willy's suggestion is exactly what I would like to know as well, please confirm what happens when re-registering the shell extensions, This article goes into more detail about how to do this: https://www.tracker-software.com/knowle ... extensions
