Microsoft .NET Framework

The .NET framework 4.5 or higher must be installed and activated on your system before you can install and use AssistMyTeam Software. In newer windows, such as Windows 10, 8.1 and 8, .Net framework 4.5 is available as part of the OS, and is installed by default. For Windows 7 and Vista, you need to download the .NET framework 4.5 redistributable from Microsoft website and install it manually. .NET Framework 4.5 is not supported (cannot be installed) on Windows XP.

For server based windows, .NET framework 4.5 is installed part of Windows Server 2012 and higher versions. If you are using older versions such as Windows Server 2008 R2, you would need to download and install the 4.5 framework.

NOTE that, even if you have  older versions of .NET Framework 2 or 3.5, you still need to enable or install .NET Framework 4.5 on your system for our product to work. Multiple versions of the .NET Framework can be loaded on a single computer at the same time. This means that you do not have to uninstall previous versions of. NET frameworks in order to install a later version.

  • For Windows 7 and Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, you can download the .NET framework 4.5 redistributable here
  • For Windows 8 and higher versions (8.1, 10), the .NET framework 4.5 is already built-in with the OS and installed/enabled by default. However, it may not be enabled by default. To enable it, follow the steps below:STEP 1) You will need to have an Administrator account in Windows 8/8.1/10 to turn Windows Features on or off. From Metro/Start Menu, right-click anywhere in the background and a tab appears in the bottom. Click the icon labeled All apps in the bottom-right corner. (or you can simply search for the term ‘Uninstall’ from Start menu under Settings tab)STEP 2) The Apps menu opens. Scroll to the right and click Control Panel.

    STEP 3) The Control Panel opens. Click Uninstall a Program.

    STEP 4) The Programs and Features window opens. Click Turn Windows features on or off.

    STEP 5) The Windows Features window opens. Check the box labeled ‘.NET Framework 4.5 Advanced Services’ or ‘.NET Framework 4.6 Advanced Services’ and then click Ok.


    STEP 6) You are notified that Windows completed the requested changes (see below). Click Close, and then restart your computer.

It typically takes not more a minute to perform the install and configuration.

With this guide, you would be able to quickly and easily install and configure Attachment Manager addin in your Outlook.

For ‘Per User Installation’ (ideal for standalone single user/workstation) (for Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019)

For ‘Per Machine Installation’ (ideal for installing on Citrix and Terminal Servers) (for Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019)
NOTE: Citrix setups are available only to Enterprise License holders

The downloaded zip file contains the setup.exe and other supporting documents. Extract these file contents to a file folder.

NOTE: Per User Installation and Per Machine Installation
In Per User Installation,
the install is performed 100% on the local system and nothing is installed on your Exchange or Windows Server. Further, this install is intended to serve only the current logged on user of the system/workstation and will be installed under the user’s application data folder (instead of Programs Files folder) and no elevated permission is required (This is known as per user installation). So, there won’t be a prompt from UAC to allow this install unless you change the install directory to say, Programs Files which will warrant an elevated permission/UAC prompt. If the same system is used by multiple users, each one needs to install the add-in on their profile with the default installation folder location.

Per Machine Installation: If you have the need to have a single install that serves all users of the system (i.e., per machine installation, which technically means the files will be installed under Program files folder and the add-in will be registered under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry hive rather than HKEY_CURRENT_USER), request the Citrix/Terminal Server version of the setups from us to perform a per machine installation.

Step 1. Run the AttachmentManagerSetup.exe to start the installation. Click ‘Next‘ to Continue. If Outlook 2007 or later is not installed, the setup wizard will not be able to proceed. Please also ensure Outlook is shutdown (if already running or active in the task manager) as the setup has to install an Outlook add-in.

Step 2. Select the appropriate destination folder where the application files will be installed. If you change the default folder path, please make sure you have appropriate permission. (Note: by default, it will be installed under your application data folder)

Step 3. Click ‘Next’ to continue with the files extraction. It just takes a few minutes to complete the whole copying process.

Step 4. Click ‘Finish’. This ends the files installation process in your system.

Now start Microsoft Outlook. If the Attachment Manager add-in installation was successful, you will see a toolbar or ribbon with the title ‘Attachment Manager’ in Outlook.

To configure the output settings for detached attachments and others, click the ‘Settings’ button.

What’s new in Version 4.0?

  • Added support for 64 bit Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013.
  • Added ‘Folder & Auto Option‘ button. Here you can specify a custom destination file folder for that particular Outlook folder overwriting the global file folder. Additionally, you can set automation on folder level in two ways. The first, allow the addin to automatically detach attachment files from the newly received incoming email. The second option allows you to specify the number of days (i.e. age) the emails can remain in the Outlook folder before the attachments from the emails are automatically detached to the mapped file folder.

  • Added ‘Mapped Folders Info’ button. This tool will generate a list showing which file folders are mapped or associated to which Outlook folders. You can use this tool to quickly specify destination file folder for individual Outlook folder.
  • Added ‘Summary Report’ button. This tool shows existing email items of that particular Outlook folder that are yet to be detached. You can then choose multiple email items to detach or delete.

  • Added support for recursively detaching of attachments from all emails under a particular Outlook folder and its subfolders. This is available under Outlook > Attachment Manager toolbar > ‘Detach Files’ menu > ‘Detach all mails of this folder and its subfolder’

  • Added option ‘Follow Outlook folders Hierarchy’ under Outlook > Attachment Manager toolbar > Settings > Output Settings tab. Enabling this option will force the addin to output the detached files into subfolders similar to hierarchical ordering of the Outlook folder.

    For instance, if the attachments file folder is C:\Users\[USER]\Documents\My Attachments, and if the email is in your Inbox (\\Monica\Inbox) then attachments from that email will be detached to folder path similar to ‘C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\My Attachments\Monica\Inbox‘.

  • Added a new application ‘AssistMyTeam.AttachmentManagerAdmn.exe‘ with which administrator can pre-configure various settings of Attachment Manager such as specify a network share/disk as attachment output folder for all users of your company and other output settings and behaviors of the add-in and save them to an external XML file (named ‘AttachmentManagerSettingsInfo.xml‘. This XML file can then be placed on a network shared folder along with the Attachment Manager setup file (e.g., AttachmentManagerSetup_x86.exe or AttachmentManagerSetup_x64.exe) for enterprise deployment of pre-configured settings of Attachment Manager addin to multiple systems. NOTE: This feature is only available for available to Enterprise License holders. Learn more on Enterprise Deployment

What’s new in Version 3.0?

  • Added support for specifying a separate attachment folder for each Outlook folder, in addition to the support for using a global attachment folder for all Outlook folders. If a separate folder option is enabled, on each Outlook folder, a button ‘Specify Attachment Folder…’ button will be visible in the Attachment Manager toolbar or ribbon.

    You can then choose a file folder from the browse for folder dialog box. If a file folder had been specified previously for the current Outlook folder, the caption of this button will change to ‘Change Attachment Folder…’, and if you hover the mouse over it, it would show the full path of the attachment folder path in the tool tip balloon.

  • Added support for batch detachment of attachments from all mail items in the Outlook folder. There is a new button ‘Detach All’ available under the ‘Advanced…’ drop down menu.

  • Added support for batch re-instatement of detached files from the attachment file folder back to the original emails in Outlook. There is a new button ‘Re-Attach All’ available under the ‘Advanced…’ drop down menu.
  • Added support for automatic detachment or deletion of attachments from the sent items folder. By default, it is disabled.

  • Added a new feature whereby you can copy all the attachment files to a user specified file folder, instead of detaching the actual attachments from the emails. For this purpose, there is a new button ‘Copy attachments to a custom file folder’ under the ‘Advanced…’ drop down menu.
  • A new enhancement in automatic detaching of attachments from monitored folders and mailboxes, is the addition of scanning at Outlook startup or when a new mail folder is added for monitoring. With this arrangement, existing emails or those emails that arrived in the Outlook folder when Attachment Manager add-in was not running, are automatically processed so that you don’t have to hunt them and detach manually. So, don’t panic when you see the following dialog box at startup.

  • Fixed a bug whereby the files links to the detached attachments are not embedded into the email body for few email items. This typically happens to those emails that have both embedded images in the body (inline images) and other attachments (visible with clips).
  • Fixed a bug where in reply or forward window, if you try to use the ‘Remove Links’ or ‘Re-attach files’ buttons (located in the inspector ribbon), Attachment Manager does nothing. This behavior only happens on Outlook 2007 and 2010.
  • The first option in the attachment naming scheme (which is ‘Received Date/Time + Attachment Name’) is now altered. In the new version, the received date is formatted as ‘‘.
