Hello Henry,

Please tell me:
- Which version of Windows and Outlook are you using?
- Are you the only user on your computer with full administrative rights and are installing the plugin by right-clicking on the installer file and choosing "Run as Administrator"?

If so, please try to install the following software before attempting to install the plugin:
- Microsoft .NET Framework 4 ( http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992 ) and
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=06c32242-2289-4471-93aa-ce96aa5cbc36 )

Also, please note that the Todoist plugin does not integrate or interact with your Outlook tasks. You can use it as an alternative to Outlook's Tasks feature, but you can't import your existing Outlook Tasks to it.

Best regards,
