On what OS- platform and wich version does this happen?

So e.g. Windows 10 MM vs 2017

Have you checked the system requirements for MM 2012.
They are not on the Mindjet Website anymore -since we are already on vs 2017 -

I found an old PDF and clipped the important part below



And I also did find that the version that came out after MM2012 was not optimized for windows 10.

So it maybe that you are simply using a version of MindManager that is too old for the OS platform you have.

Could be related to the Microsoft Office integrations, have a look here: https://community.mindjet.com/mindjet/topics/mm_14_windows_8_1_server_busy

Thank you Mathieu, that could make sense as Outlook as recently made changes which seems to have messed up my programs almost over-night, I will speak to tech support tomorrow & see what they suggest.  Thanks for your help.
