Microsoft Word launches automatically when starting Microsoft Outlook

Version 1

    Problem

    When Microsoft Outlook is started in an RES Workspace Manager managed session, Microsoft Word launches automatically (with an "-embedded" parameter).
     
    This behavior applies to:
     
    •   RES PowerFuse 2008 SR7 (8.0.7.16) and higher
    •   RES PowerFuse 2008 SR8 (8.0.8.3) and higher
    •   RES PowerFuse 2010 SR1 (9.0.1.0) and higer

     

    Cause

    Next to a managed Microsoft Office Word process, an unmanaged version is being launched, this could lead to conficts with the normail.dot file.
