I was just looking for this the other day! Nice tutorial. I have a few questions, if I may:

What is the file that is periodically downloaded? What does it actually do, and how does it work? Also, can the file be downloaded manually, and can the diagnostic it performs be started manually?

Thanks.

Hello there,

Honestly I'm not sure what it downloads periodically but enabling that option try to repair Outlook automatically instead of we manually initiating it. Unlike other Office versions we can't run the Diagnostic manually. Microsoft removed that option which I'm not very happy about

Agreed. I did a repair installation when MS Word would not retain a setting I had placed. That seems to have fixed the problem. Still, I had checked downloading the diagnostic, but it obviously did not catch this problem. So I was wondering what this mysterious utility is and if it can be run manually.
