This guide describes the installation of the Permido Outlook Add-In


Permido requires that .NET 4.6.2 or later is installed on the desktop / server running Outlook with the user before the addin can be installed. Expect the computer / server to be restarted if .Net 4.6.2 is to be installed.

It does not require restarting the client / server to install the Permido addin the first time it is installed. At a later update of the Permido addin, it is recommended that the old version be uninstalled first before the new version is then installed and Microsoft Outlook must be closed.

If you dont know if you have .NET 4.6.2 on your computer, you can try to install Permido and then you will get an error if the requirement is not fullfilled.
