Microsoft Outlook Hyperlinks Fail to Open

When you try to open a link from Microsoft Outlook and it fails is very uncomfortable. Here I bring the recipe for what to do to make this feacture working again in Microsoft Outlook.

* The first thing to do is reset the default browser:
  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Click Tools > Internet Options > Programs tab.
  3. Click Make default button.
  4. Click OK.
* At this time we need register some Windows DLL files. For this following the below instructions:
  1. Copy the script below, open the Notepad and paste the script in it.
  2. Save this in any location, with any name e.g C:/DLLinstall.bat.
  3. Go to the location of .bat file in my case C:/DLLinstall.batright click in it, and Run as administrator.
  4. After finished. Click OK in any DLL installation confirmation. 
* If we don't have any error in the DLL installed, we can continue.

* Now,  we need reset the (NONE) URL file Types. For this following the below steps:
  1. Click Star > My Computer > Tools menus > Folder options > File Types tab.
  2. Scroll down until (NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol. Click to select.
  3. Click on Advanced button.
  4. Click to select open item.
  5. Click Edit > Browser button.
  6. Go to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe. Click OK.
  7. Add %1 to the end of the file name e.g. C\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe %1.
  8. Click OK > Close.
* We need repeat the above process for (NONE) URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy.

Finally you are ready to Test a hyperlink in Microsoft Outlook.
