Outlook installation: "application data binding format in invalid" error
Can't seem to install Todoist for Outlook.
Both Visual Studio 2010 Tools and .Net 4 were installed.
But I'm getting next error:
Installing Office customization
There was an error during installation.
The application binding data format is invalid. (Exception from HRESULT:0x800736B2)
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800736B2): The application binding data format is invalid. (Exception from HRESULT:0x800736B2)
I'm anxious getting it to work, it would be great if you could help with this

please try to access this folder:
and delete the TodoistForOutlook1_3 folder inside it.
Next, go to http://todoist.com/outlook use the "Download now" link and choose to save the installer file locally instead of opening it. Save it in a main directory on your hard drive (C:/, for example) and from there open it "as administrator" (right-clicking on it).
If this won't work, please tell me:
- What operating system are you using?
- Which version of Outlook are you using?

Thanks, but it didn't help.
My OS is XP SP3, Outlook 2010
I am an administrator on my machine, but don't have the "run as administrator" option when right-clicking.
Neither can I find anything alike when I open the properties of Todoist_For_Microsoft_Outlook.exe.
in Windows XP, you should see just "Run as..." below the "Open" function when clicking on any EXE file.
Also, please try to re-install Visual Studio Tools:
and try again.

Thanks again for your reply, but it doesn't work unfortunately.
I do have "Run as..." available, but there's no choice to run as Administrator. I do have full control rights over my (company) machine, can there be any difference between administrator and someone who has full control?
I have also tried the Visual Studio Tools re-install, and even uninstalled and re-installed everything (.Net 4, VS Tools), but no luck.
Thanks for efforts anyway
