Hey all...Hope you can help

Just installed MSOffice 2003 over top of my MSOffice XP and alls I can say is...”This suite is very, very kewl.”

Everything runs fantastic except for one thing…I have lost my Outlook 2003 Desktop Icon. The install removed my Outlook 2002 Desktop Icon and did not replace it with a 2003 one.

I searched MS's site for any info and only came up with info on how to restore the Outlook 98, 2000, and 2002 Desktop Icon. For the heck of it I also uninstalled and reinstalled MSOffice 2003 but that did not come up with the desired results. Is there a registry key I have to edit to bring it back?

Note: I did NOT delete it, it just did not show up. I know I can create a shortcut but I would prefer the real deal.

Thanks in advance...:D

Hey all...

If anybody is interested...

I also sent an e-mail to MS and to my astonishment I got an answer back approx 5 hrs after I posted this. Unforunately I was not able to post their answer until now.

From MS:
Regarding your question… The new logo requirements for applications built for Windows XP specify that no application should install a desktop icon. The Outlook icon has moved to the Start menu when installed on WinXP.
So basically if your running WinXP and you install MSOffice 2003 you will not get an Outlook 2003 Desktop icon...

Well now we know...

Laters,
