I recently had to load old registry settings using the rb*.cab command. Since then i haven;t been able to open Outlook 2000. I get the following message: "An OLE registration error has occurred. This program is not correctly installed. Run setup again."

I've run setup many times but can't get it to work. I've deleted my office files and reinstalled office 2000 clean a few times but this didn't do anything. if also tried reinstalling '97 and upgrading but still bet the same problem. Please help!

As Dreamboat already inferred, it's a known Outlook 2000 problem, solved with the SR-1/SR-1a Service Release.

I think you'd do well to uninstall Office, and reinstall it again.

Finally reinstall the SR-1a upgrade.

Good luck,

Thanks Tony...I have uninstalled office and reinstalled it. Downloaded the service parck and tried to install it. It kept saying it was already installed. Finally gave up and have reformated and started from scratch. Everything going well except I backed up my contacts and back them up on the cd writer, but it will not let me import them back. Have tried everything... Got any ideas.

i exported my contacts to a .pst file and copied on cd writer. Now cannot import them back. Error message Properties for this information service must be defined prior to use. Not sure what that means. Any help would be appreciated.

Melinda,

This happens when the .pst file has been marked as read-only, so you should remove the read-only attribute from this personal folders file.

Good luck,

Right-click it, choose 'properties', and remove the check mark, if there.

Then click OK.

Good luck,

Ok there ar no checks there. I back the pst to a floppy and I can import it. I back it up on the cdwriter and it will not let me import it back. I am thinking it must have something to do with the cdwriter. I am doing multisessions and clicking write. Am i backing it up wrong? All of the word, access, and pictures let me copy them back to C: drive and open. It is only this file I am having trouble with. :confused: HELP HELP

Thanks for all of your help

I'm not sure.
I'm not running Outlook 2000 either, unfortunately.

How are you importing the data? You should do so through File/Import And Export

And you're absolutely sure the file you're trying to import isn't marked 'read-only'?

Yes I am sure. That is exactly how it is acting. That is the only file it would not let me import. I imported my favorites from the same multisession cd that I did the pst file. Of course the favorite file extension was htm. It did great. I don't know what else to try.
