I do not use Outlook Express often, & Microsoft Outlook is not installed. I
have XP SP2 Home. Today I went into OE & I received this error when clicking
on an email: the address book failed to load. Outlook Express is incorrectly
configured, please re-install." I followed the instructions to reinstall OE
I followed these instructions for Windows XP and Windows
XP SP1: Edit the
registry and install Internet Explorer 6 & reinstalled OE6 (only).
To reinstall only Outlook Express 6 on Windows XP, use the following
right-click the IsInstalled (REG_DWORD) value, and then click Modify. Change
the value data from 1 to 0, and then click OK. I then went to windows xp
updates & nothing.
So, then I rebooted & It said OE has been removed & do you want to ____
Personal settings (i believe it said to remove, but not sure). The first
time I said no (default). I went into update windows & nothing. So I
rebooted again & this time I said yes, still no updates from Windows Update.
I still get the message & all the
Identies are still there. I do not care
for anything that was in OE to be saved, I just would like it to work
propertly, if I do ever need it.
