  1. Just updated, and now Outlook 2011 did not open anymore, it just crash…..

  2. it is same as me.

  3. Can’t even update.  The installer encounters a software issue and stops the installation every time.

  4. Avoid this 14.1.3 update if you use Outlook. Since I upgraded Outlook crashes on every launch. I’ll have to restore from a backup.

  5. I ran the update on 2 Macs and Outlook crashed on launch on both.  I then ran the update on a third and Outlook worked fine.  Went back to one of the crashing Outlook Macs, and I was able to re-download the update and install.  Now it works fine.

  6. likewise… Oultlook won’t even open after this update – I then had to uninstall outlook and then I reinstalled the previous Outlook from Time Machine – bloody disaster – do MS not check these issues before release. I must say that especially Outlook 2011 – is a really big letdown – all show and no substance – poor, very poor….

  7. Same here; Outlook crashed on both my machines (early 2010 MBP and brand new MacAir) as soon as I installed the updated.  Tried deleting and reinstalling Outlook on one of the machines and it didn’t work.  Will try reinstalling the update as one poster suggested below.  Hope I don’t have to do a full restore from time machine!

  8. ok, I rolled back the Outlook application in Time Machine, manually downloaded the update file and applied the update, and now it works on both my machines.  When I first opened Outlook again a windows popped up with progress bars saying “Updating Identities” and “Updating Contacts”.  This hadn’t happened the first time.

    Seems to be working okay for me now; hope the rest of you manage to fix this also.

  9. I had a similar experience where the update ran from the auto update dialog and afterward Outlook would not start.  Downloaded the package and updated by hand and it now works.
