Outlook 2007 crashes while inserting network shared path hyperlink into mail body

My outlook will frequently crash when I am inserting a network shared path hyperlink into mail body. I am using Windows 7 Ent x86 & Outlook 2007 (12.0.6539.5000) with SP2 (12.0.6535.5002) and below is the logs from system event viewer.

Does it happen only when you insert the network shared path as hyperlink?

Try inserting some other hyperlink link in the body of the email and check if it works fine.

I have one user reporting the exact same problem. But it is not happening consistently. When it does happen, it only happens when trying to insert a link to network shared path; it does not happen for links to local files. In addition, when it does happen, it happens in Outlook and Word. After several failed attempts to insert a hyperlink to a file on a network share, it will suddenly work and stay working for several days.


Yes it is only happened while inserting network shared path as hyperlink into mail body, and it works fine as when I am inserting web hyperlinks for several times.


I am just curious whether your user is using Windows 7 as well..?


Was there ever a solution found for this?

I have a user with the exact same issue. PC is win 7 x64, running outlook 2007, both fully patched. The network share that the hyperlink is being taken from is on a fully patched server 2003 R2 x86 box on the the same LAN.
