Plugin Reporting Outlook Missing Default Profile


When I attempt to use an application that syncs with Outlook, I get an error:

Setup cannot continue because Outlook isn’t configured to have a default profile.


This error occurs after you install an application and the protocols used for synchronization are not set to Outlook.
