I am trying to use the Outlook 2016 command line switch "/altvba <VbaProject.otm path>" to start Outlook with its "VbaProject.OTM" macro file in a non-standard location instead of "%appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook", but it does NOT work. I have used this switch successfully in previous versions of Outlook, and it is supposed to work in Outlook 2016 but when I try to use it, I receive an error message that this switch is not valid. Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for the info. I hadn't been able to find any information that a registry entry was needed for Outlook 2016 (only found info for Outlook 2013). I added the EnableAltVba key and it works now. Thank you.
