Found a suggestion from Evernote forum to re-register EvernoteOL.dll,  using the following process 1. Exit Outlook.

In the Run dialog enter the following and press OK cmd.exe 4. In the cmd.exe window, change directory to the Evernote installation directory: cd “c:\Program Files\Evernote\Evernote” 5.
