The problem was getting an Outlook form template which has an .oft extension to run from an icon in the NAL.


  1. Create a simple app.
  2. Under the 'Run Options' tab, set the 'Path to executable file' to run explorer.exe. (No path is needed- just type explorer.exe.)
  3. In the 'Parameters' Box type in the path to the .oft file e.g G:\directory\template.oft
  4. Pat yourself on the back!
