Same experience as Tech but with Outlook 2003 and Win XP SP3 ... the avast Outlook provider is not starting ... no avast splash screen and the provider continues to say "waiting for subsystem to start".

With avast Home and scanning "all local disks", thorough scan with (or without) archives is showing an increasing progress percentage for me.

My outlook is screwed too, though the AavmRpch.dll file is very much physically present.   :'(

We will just have to wait on a fix of which I am sure the team at Avast are working on.

I am sticking with the 4.8.1201 non beta for the time being.

Did you disable Avast self defense module prior to update?

The beta has now been updated to v4.8.1218.
Among other minor improvements, it is supposed to fix the AavmRpch.dll Outlook plugin issue.

Thanks

Installed the latest beta update.

No change at all from my last report on Outlook 2003 with Windows XP SP3 ... in other words ... still not working.

Please advise if there is further assistance I can provide.

Alan, sounds like the provider (plugin) is disabled by Outlook.
Isn't it listed in Outlook About -> Disabled Items dialog? (BTW that's an obvious place to look for this stuff, isn't it? ;))

Vlk,

Would you say it is now safe to go and try this beta now that the Microsoft Outlook plugin has been fixed?

Also, I use Microsoft Outlook 2000, and I am unable to disable the self defense module, should this be ok when using the beta.exe file?

The Outlook plug-in is being disabled from time to time... What's wrong? How to troubleshoot?
I enable it, close Outlook, then it starts... Next boot, it could be disabled or not...
Maybe something related to shutting down the computer with Outlook opened (running in background)?
