This has only been tested on Windows 10 in combination with Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016.

$User = $env:USERNAME
$Path = "C:\Users\" + $User + "\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook"
$Key16 = "HKCU:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles"
$Key15 = "HKCU:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Profiles"
