We have built an Outlook extension that works great using.NET technology. The problem is that whenever Outlook starts, it takes a bit of time to startup (1.6 seconds) which causes outlook to shut it down.
We have optimized it to the point that Microsoft said, this is the.NET framework starting, and there if very little you can do about it. Someone suggested into moving to a COM object alternative. I am looking for advice and then probably someone to take on that conversion if necessary.
