Hello, bit of a long shot this but I thought I can only ask. I am having issues with Searching Public Folders within Exchange 2016 and I have been trying to find software that might help and came across Searchpublicfolders.exe on which looks quite old and does state that its Windows 7 compatible and had not been tested for Outlook 2010. So its a very long shot of it possibly working with Windows 10 and Exchange 2016.

The first issue is that component 'MSCOMCTL.OCX' was missing, which I resolved. I got it working and it does look like it could be a very useful utility. But it sometimes crashes, with the following error message.

'Run-Time Error 438:
Object doesn't support this property or method

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Guessing its because it was written for a different version of mscomctl, possibly relating to the differences between 32 and 64 bit. Not sure if there is a solution without recompiling it... do any of the other search utilities support PF?
