Hi,

I tried to change the display name of a newly added .pst store

theApp.Instance.Application.Session.AddStoreEx(path,Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.OlStoreType.olStoreUnicode); //Find Our Store with WorkAround over FilePath Outlook.Stores stores=theApp.Instance.Application.Session.Stores; foreach (Outlook.Store store in stores) { if (store.FilePath== path) { AO_Store = store; string PR_DISPLAY_NAME=@"http://schemas.microsoft.com/mapi/proptag/0x3001001F"; Outlook.PropertyAccessor oPA=store.PropertyAccessor; try { oPA.SetProperty(PR_DISPLAY_NAME,"ArtistsOrganizer"); } catch (Exception e) { Debug.WriteLine(e.Message); } } }But I get an access denied exception when I run this.All the bestTom

I tried to change the display name of a newly added .pst store

theApp.Instance.Application.Session.AddStoreEx(path,Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.OlStoreType.olStoreUnicode);

//Find Our Store with WorkAround over FilePath

Outlook.Stores stores=theApp.Instance.Application.Session.Stores;

foreach (Outlook.Store store in stores)

{

if (store.FilePath== path)

{

AO_Store = store;

string PR_DISPLAY_NAME=@"http://schemas.microsoft.com/mapi/proptag/0x3001001F";

Outlook.PropertyAccessor oPA=store.PropertyAccessor;

try

{

oPA.SetProperty(PR_DISPLAY_NAME,"ArtistsOrganizer");

}

catch (Exception e)

{

Debug.WriteLine(e.Message);

}

}

}

But I get an access denied exception when I run this.

All the bestTom

It looks like you can't set that property using the PropertyAccessor object.

When MS added that way of accessing properties not exposed in the object

model some were restricted for read or write access. The explanation is that

those restricted properties are important to the business logic of Outlook

and so aren't available to the user for unrestricted access.

It looks like PR_DISPLAY_NAME on a Store is one of those properties. I

verified the problem using both the Unicode property tag you used as well as

the ANSI equivalent (ending in 0x1E instead of in 0x1F) and write access was

restricted in both cases. Read access works.

I was able to change the property value using OutlookSpy, so that means that

if you use Extended MAPI or another API such as Redemption

(www.dimastr.com/redemption) or even CDO 1.21 you would be able to change

that property value.

Seems easier to me to just change it with the Outlook UI.

The point is, that my Add-In should initialize it's folder structure automatically at the first Start. So Asking the user to change

the Name is a bit way out

Hi,

I just found Out, that if you only want to change the name, the user sees in Outlook for the new store, it's enough just to change

the "Name" of the Defaultfolder of the store.

Outlook.MAPIFolder rootFolder = (Outlook.Folder) AO_Store.GetRootFolder();

rootFolder.Name = "ArtistsOrganizer";
