After upgrading 500 clients from 6.2.4 to 6.2.6 most everyone lost their SendSLX button. i had to release a quick fix. I know Sage had provided a .bat fix that doesn't always do the trick so this is what i came up with. Users can repair it themselves by running the EXE from the network using the following AutoIt code compiled to exe.
All you need to do is install AutoIt v3, paste the following code in a new .au3 file, modify the $Password variable, and modify the $file (Logfile) path. Build as EXE and distribute a link to the users after testing.

MsgBox(4096, "Complete!", "Open Outlook and check to see if you are now able to see the SENDSLX button. If not, REBOOT and try running the script again.")
$file = FileOpen("\\servername\sharename\Script_Logs\Repair Missing SENDSLX button.txt", 9)
If $file = 1 Then
FileWrite($file, @MON & "/" & @MDAY & "/" & @YEAR & @TAB & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & @TAB & $MissingSendSLXVersion & @TAB & @ComputerName & @TAB & @UserName & @CRLF)
