OutlookParameterGUI – Free Portable Tool for Outlook Troubleshooting
OutlookParameterGUI is a free portable troubleshooting tool which makes it easy to launch Outlook 2007, 2010 or 2012 with one of the program’s command-line switches. The Outlook startup parameters are provided by Microsoft and designed to fix a variety of Outlook issues and reset several Outlook options to their defaults. Each parameter comes with a short description of what it does.
You don’t have to know what a particular command line switch does, either, as OutlookParameterGUI provides basic explanations for you. Choose the “/cleanprofile” parameter, and you’ll read that this “removes invalid profile keys and recreates default Registry keys where applicable”: again, that sounds like something which might be worth trying if your Outlook installation has been damaged for some reason.
And as a bonus, there’s also a tab with useful details about your copy of Outlook: the product ID, version number, architecture (32 or 64-bit), even the serial number (check Options > Show Serial to reveal this). You do need to be careful how you use OutlookParameterGUI, though, as some of its settings make changes which you can’t reverse: for example, choosing /cleanrules will “delete client and server-based rules”. Read the explanation of each setting, and don’t use it unless you understand precisely what it’ll do, and you’re sure that’s appropriate for your installation.
