Outlook 2016 includes some new features designed to improve email, contacts and task management. Here is a list of improvements in Outlook 2016. This article explains how to upgrade the DS Development add-ins to Outlook 2016.
Migrating our Outlook add-ins to Outlook 2016
Upgrading from older Outlook versions is pretty straight forward, as long as you install the same Office platform version (x32 or x64). Outlook 2016 will automatically pickup your email accounts, email folders and previously installed Outlook add-ins.
If you are using any of our Outlook add-ins on an older Outlook version and you are migrating to Outlook 2016, you do not need to uninstall / reinstall the add-ins. Simply upgrade Office and Outlook will pickup our add-ins, ready to go.
Our add-ins are accessible from the Outlook 2016 main ribbon, just like before:
Outlook 2016 doesn’t change the way any of our add-ins work and it doesn’t limit their features. You don’t need to reinstall the add-ins for Outlook 2016 and you don’t need to reactivate your add-in license.
Using add-ins on a fresh installation of Outlook 2016
Obviously, you don’t have to upgrade from an earlier Outlook version in order to use our add-ins for Outlook 2016. If you are running a fresh (not upgraded) version of Outlook 2016, all you have to do is to download the required add-in from our web site (see the list below).
