Intallation problems

V

Guys, I love Todoist but cannot start to use it properly because of problems with Outlook integration.
Basically I have the same problem as David Culp (Asked on Jan 29, 2014 - 15:05 "New Software still not working on Outlook for me DC")

I'm on Windows 7 32bit and Outlook 2010 but suppose that it will accure on every later W-system.
But I went further! In my corporate network I Can't install any *.exe, only admins can. But on most programs if you still try to do this a "login/pass window" appear. Mostly you manage to install the program by entering the admin log/pass. Here the first problem comes:

- Todoist doesn't ask for that, it just says "you need to have admin rights".

Then the only way is to switch the user and enter the Admin workspace. On most programs if the "admin login/pass window" in my user workspace fails, I install the programs As admin (entering admin worplace) and they work with my worplace (when I enter as myself, not as admin). Some programs ask if I want to install it for every user or only for the current (admin). And here it comes: I install todoist (it doesn't ask me if its only for admin or for everyone, which on all other programs means that it is for everyone), it appears in Outlook instanly (without any twindling). But then I switch back to my worplace (reenter as myself) there is nothing in Outlook. It appears in the program list but does not appear in the "addin list" in Outlook.

So I guess the problem is that in a corporate network you can't install it as a common user and installing it as admin leaves it only to the admin (or another user with admin rights)

Hope that you get that fixed, because it would make Todoist even more unbeatable.

YEah! I've solved it adding the "OutlookTodoistADX.dll" manually in Outlook settings\addins!
