Depending on your version of Outlook, you access the Add2Outlook Console or Configuration Tab differently:

Outlook 2010: The Add2Outlook Console Tab or Configuration page is located in the File Options Add-ins page, Add2Outlook.  The Sync Now/Stop Sync toggle button and Start/Stop Timer toggle buttons are available from the Add-ins toolbar on the top of Outlook.

Outlook 2007: The Console Tab or Configuration page is located in Tools, Options, Add2Outlook.  The Sync Now/Stop Sync toggle button and Start/Stop Timer toggle buttons are available from the Add-ins toolbar on the top of Outlook.

Outlook 2003: The Add2Outlook Console is actually a tab from within Outlook Tools, Options, Add2Outlook.  The Sync Now/Stop Sync toggle button and Start/Stop Timer toggle buttons are available on the lower left hand corner of Outlook.

 

 

We will continue with the Outlook 2010 installation example as the screens are the same.  Open Outlook.  You should be presented with the screen above.

 

 

Then you should see something similar to the following  above screen.

 

If you do see these options, Select File from the top drop down, Options and Add-ins and Add-in Options.  If you do not see these options, follow the following troubleshooting tip: If the screens above don't show up or there are no Add-ins available in your version of Outlook, and the Add2Outlook add in does not show up, look to the screen shown below.

Outlook 2007: go to Tools Trust Center for the similar screen.

Outlook 2003: go to Tools, Options, Advanced, Com Add-ins.

 

 

See above that the Add2Outlook Add-in is Inactive?  To activate it, select Manage Com Add-ins at the bottom and press Go...

 

 

Enable the Add2Outlook Com Add-in by putting a check box next to the Add2Outlook Add-in and press OK.

 

 

If the Add2Outlook Com Add-in loads, it will prompt you to install the Add-in.  It is from a trusted source (Advantage International, our parent company) with a valid trust certificate, so select Install.  If the Com Add-in was active when Outlook loaded, it would present you with the following above screen when opening Outlook.

 

 

Once it is installed, a screen confirming that the program was installed for that profile is shown.  Press OK to continue.

Now that the Com Add-in has installed correctly, and it is active for the current profile, we will go to the Add2Outlook Console to create a relationship.
