    with last MAPICDO ( and using last MFCMAPI ( we can create MAPI profile for Exchange 2013.

    But there is a problem with Public Folders – when we logon with created profile and then try to open Public Folders store -> we get MAPI_E_FAILONEPROVIDER on Function: CallOpenMsgStore File: MainDlg.cpp Line: 436

    And then (when cursor is set on Public Folders store) it shows properties PR_RECORD_KEY, PR_PROVIDER_UID and PR_SERVICE_UID as PT_ERROR

    Can you explain how to resolve this problem?

    I tried posting the question from below on another article I think, but I do not find it, so here it is again:

    I have managed to open a profile in Exchange 2013 (on Windows 2012), using latest MFCMAPI version.

    However, being logged on as builtin domain administrator (also being the user used when installing the Exchange Server), when I try to open another user's mailbox I get the following error:

    Code: MAPI_E_FAILONEPROVIDER == 0x8004011D

    Function OpenOtherUsersMailboxFromGal( lpMAPISession, lpAddrBook, &lpMailboxMDB)

    File MainDlg.cpp

    Line 727

    A similar error is popped up if I create a profile for another user's mailbox:

    Code: MAPI_E_FAILONEPROVIDER == 0x8004011D

    Function CallOpenMsgStore( lpMAPISession, (ULONG_PTR)m_hWnd, lpEntryID, ulFlags, (LPMDB*) lppMAPIProp)

    File MainDlg.cpp

    Line 436

    My suspicion is that it is permissions related; do you have any suggestions?

    If it were permissions related, shouldn't I get MAPI_E_NO_ACCESS?

    Anyway, in case of permissions, what exactly permissions should I set up?

    Thank you,

    Hi Stephen,

  6. Steve Dirickson says:

    This release includes copies (or slightly-modified copies?) of the MAPI headers from the Office 2010 drop; are there newer headers for Office 2013?…/cc963761.aspx suggests that there are not. FWIW, it also points to a completely-incorrect path for installing the 2010 headers.

  7. There was not a refresh to those headers for 2013. I've documented a handful of additions on my blog, but the intention with those is that if you need them, you'll include the definitions by hand, as MFCMAPI does.
