Windows 10 and Office 365 3rd party app specifies no default application

Client that recently installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 and Office 365 Home and they have a 3rd party application that uses the default Mail client to send out email gave an error that there was no default email client associated. It was classified that the Outlook was the default application but it still failed. Seems there are a lot of 3rd party apps that don’t recognize 64-Bit version of Outlook. Microsoft just recently switched its default installation of Office 365 (and likely Office 2019) to install the 64-bit version. I tried this website option but it did not work for me. So I had to uninstall the Office and then install the Office 365 32-Bit version. Here is a link on describing it. Basically uninstall. Then go to office.com/account. Login and select Install Office but select the option link and change it to 32-bit. Once installed the 3rd party program works! Another MS trying to push technology that has not fully caught up to 3rd party programs!
