Unable to Insert Object in Outlook

By steven.green ·
When in a new message, and you want to choose to insert an Object (via Insert>Object), we get an error message that says "Can't open the object". We are using RTF format and the error comes up when we choose the menu option, not any specific object.

This is a Win95/98 environment with NT servers. We use Outlook 98 and Technet does not have anything concerning this message.
We are unable to use HTML format, as we need to have the option Insert>Object in order for us to attach DocsOpen references (via DocsOle)
Any ideas??

Unable to Insert Object in Outlook

Did you install the recent Outlook Security patch from Microsoft? I think you did it!
If you not sure, you can test it and use it as a way of getting around it:
Remane the document you're trying to insert like this
setup.exe rename to setup.ex1That should take care of it.

Good luck!

P.S. the patch does not allow you to go back to the old way.

We have installed the security patch, but I was wondering if there was a way around the error message (apart from changing it to HTML - which does not allow the insertion of objects). We need to insert OLE objects, and I was wondering if there was a way we could do this, and keep the security patch. If not, what do we do??
