Hello,

 

On 10/28/20, I installed the most recent available version of Office365 on my computer. 

 

However, I am encountering an issue where the Outlook application does not relaunch after I close the initial instance. 

 

I am able to launch the application in SafeMode, however, the interface is different and there are functions that I am unable to use. After successfully launching the application in SafeMode, I am still not able to open the launch normally.

 

The application starts the initialization process, and I can see the icon pop-up on the hidden icon menu, but then it fails to fully load, and eventually, the initialization screen and hidden icon disappear. 

 

I check the taskbar menu and there are no Outlook processes/services running.

 

My current workaround entails, running the 'Quick Repair' via Control Panel. After the repair is finished running I am able to open Outlook and resume my work. 

 

Any suggestions for a more permanent fix?
