Act! v16 - Outlook 2013 add-in will not stay enabled

You may run into a issue where the Outlook addin does not enable.

Programs like Team-Viewer can keep the Outlook addin from being loaded properly as they use the same DLL file.

Anything that states it's using MSCOREE.DLL may stop the Outlook addin from staying active.

So enable those addons, they can be inactive just not disabled.
