The article describes a conflict between two Salesforce products:
Both applications are provided by Salesforce, although the Salesforce
CTI adaptor is also shipped as part of Camrivox's Flexor Manager.
The most recent version of the Connect for Microsoft Outlook application (3.2.501) introduces a conflict with some versions of the Salesforce CTI adaptor. Please see the Note on this Salesforce page:
The symptoms of the conflict vary depending on which application was installed most recently.
Two errors have been reported. Either Outlook reports a label not found error or the Softphone fails to load with a Runtime error, when accessing Salesforce in Microsoft Explorer.
If the Salesforce Outlook Addin is installed/updated after the Flexor Manager, the Flexor Manager will not function and report an error indicating that it has terminated abnormally, see screenshot below:
Salesforce CTI runtime error
If the Flexor Manager is installed/updated after the Outlook Addin, the
Outlook Addin will not function and report an error indicating a label
was not found, see screen shots below:
Screenshots of Outlook errors
Camrivox has developed the new version mentioned above to resolve the issue. If you need to downgrade the Salesforce Connect for Microsoft Outlook application to the previous version, for your convenience, a link to the application is given below. You simply need to uninstall the previous version of the Salesforce Connector for Outlook from Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs (or Programs and Features in Vista) and click on the link below to download. Then repair the Flexor installation by right clicking on the Flexor icon in the task tray and selecting update, followed by repair.
For completeness, the details of the problem are that Salesforce
include a copy of a DLL called SF_msapi4.dll in both applications.
Unfortunately, the two copies of these files are incompatible versions,
and whichever was installed last will be the one that is used by both
applications. The application to which the DLL is foreign will cease to
work. Salesforce are also continuing to work on this and may release another version of the Outlook Connector.
