Evernote outlook plugin problems

By July 16, 2012August 25th, 2012Tech

Evernote is a great piece of software when it works, which is most of the time.  It does have a couple issues I’ve come across.  Having just rebuilt both my windows 7 x64 machines,  1 refused to load the evernote plugin on Outlook 2010.  A few Google searches later and this seems to be a common issue, hence this post.  Removing, re-installing, and repairing doesn’t seem to help.  Manually loading the EvernoteOL.dll witihn Outlook told me the dll was not a valid office plugin.  Checking the file on one of my working machines shows the file was a completely different one.  Close Outlook, copy file from other machine (for me, C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\EvernoteOL.dll), launch outlook, evernote pops up briefly says it’s installing something.  Close Outlook, re-open Outlook, ‘Add to Evernote’ shows in the toolbar 🙂

I hope this helps someone else given there seems no other solution to this I could find documented anywhere.

Now if anyone knows how to fix the remaining  issue of Evernote showing months old notes when choosing to edit a note on my tablet in offline folders, let me know…

    I came across your post via Google, but I must ask: How would this help someone else unless they had access to your old machine or you posted the dll?

    I’d guess you would have to have access to another machine, any machine with Evernote already installed. I did not think twice about it as I have multiple machines with Evernote installed. It would not be possible for me to host the file here due to copyright issues, but I would imagine you could find it via google or on any of your system backups, etc.
