Enable EV client logging in outlook.

In the resulting log file, you should see this error occuring:

16/11/2011 12:02:38.380[2280]: Unable to exempt PST's from PSTDisableGrow, make sure that 'PSTDisableGrowAllowAuthenticodeOverrides' registry key has been set...

 This error can occur even if you have set the PSTDisableGrowAllowAuthenticodeOverrides value.

instead of


Both locations are parsed by Outlook when it starts up, but only the first registry location is checked by the EV client.

You should set PSTDisableGrow too if it doesn't exist yet ( same location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\PST )

regedit PSTdisablegrow and PSTdisablegrowallowauthenticodeoverrides
