Shop Management crashes after sending email with Microsoft Outlook

Symptom

The following are symptoms after attempting to send an email using the Shop Management program:

  • The Shop Management program crashes or freezes shortly after sending or closing an Outlook email.
  • Ability to send an email once, but then receive "error sending mail" in subsequent email requests in the Shop Management program. Completely closing the Shop Management program will repeat this symptom.

The error message, "ShopStream Extensible Framework has stopped" may appear after sending or closing the Outlook email.

 

 

Cause

The olmapi32.dll file in Outlook may be an incompatible version or is corrupt. The olmapi32.dll file is installed by Outlook. When Outlook is uninstalled, the DLL does not get removed. As a result, reinstalling could cause an incompatibility mismatch of the DLL file.

  2. Repair or reinstall Microsoft Outlook:
