After a long abscence from B&W I decided to upgrade from v3 to v5 (build 5.0.297), mainly for the Email notes facility. I am now regretting that decision...

Every time I start Outlook 2010 I now have to deal with an error alert:

--
Custom UI Runtime Error in Bells and Whistles.

Error found in Custom UI XML of "Bells and Whistles":
Line: 35
Column: 38
Error code: 0x80004005
Unknown Office control ID: TabComposeTools
--

As far as I am aware, TabControlTools was only introduced in Outlook 2013 (in support of inline replies), and is never present in Outlook 2010. It would appear, then, that B&W 5 is not able to correctly identify the version of Outlook in use, which is a somewhat elementary bug.

What's worse is that I addressed this with DS Development last week via email and it would seem they have declined to respond.

When will a fix be available?

Also, B&W adds two "Bells and Whistles Notes" menu items to the end of the main Outlook explorer's email context menu.

We apologize for this issue. B&W5 seems to be working fine on our Outlook 2010 tests... Can you please advise on the exact Office/Outlook version that you are using?

Mmm, it seems you have now released B&W build 5.0.304, and that appears to have resolved the startup issue.

It still, however, adds two "Bells and Whistles Notes" commands (divided by a group separator) to the end of the email context menu in the Outlook explorer. The first item contains a two-page notes icon, while the second contains a 3-page notes icon. The first one brings up a note window for the selected email, while the second does nothing.

The latest version is 5.0.306, not 5.0.304.

It's strange that it works for you (for the startup issue), because v5.0.304 still had the Outlook 2010 errors. Just in case, please download the latest version from here: http://www.outlook-apps.com/download/bells-whistles/

Just tried your download, and it is the same as I already have installed, i.e., 5.0.304.
