"Run a Script" option not showing in the OL 2016 Rules Wizard

Hi all

I have created a macro in the ThisOutlookSession: 


Sub responder(Item As Outlook.MailItem)
Dim objMsg As MailItem
Set objMsg = Application.CreateItemFromTemplate("C:\templates\reply.oft")

objMsg.Recipients.Add "<emailaddress>



But when I open the OL Rules Wizard the action RUN A SCRIPT is not available. Why?



Hi All,

I found the answer in the forums:


Hi Roady,

Thank you so much, it worked like a charm!!!

Just for my reference, I write down what I did.
1.  Create .reg file with the contents below.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


2). Run the .reg file as an admin

3). Restart outlook.  (Rebooting  was not necessary for my case)


That worked!

Thanks to the people who posted this!
