Microsoft Outlook/outlook 2010 problem
I am using Outlook 2010. My OS is Win7 Ultimate.
When I open a message in Outlook 2010 and attempt to connect to a link in the message I get the following error message:
General failure. The URL was:
"http//.............". Application not found.
This has only happened in the last couple of days. Prior to that all was working well. Even if I go back to older messages which were OK in the past I get the same result.
Can you help please?
John, I have not seen this issue before but in checking I would ask if you have recently installed or updated a browser other than the Internet explorer?
I would check that the IE is the default browser by going to the Tools menu on the Internet Explorer > Internet options > Programs and check that the Internet Explorer is the default.
If this does not work, I would do a browser search on the error you received.
Following is a link from Microsoft help community that might be helpful.
microsoft.com outlook 2010 General failure. The URL was: "http//.............". Application not found.
If you see directions to edit the computer registry, be very sure that you understand and that an error in the registry could result in a malfunction of your computer.
All the best.
