Hi Folks,
Cannot start Outlook Express as it comes up with missing MSOE.DLL.
Have reinstalled Internet Explorer 6 SP1 as this would also not start originally. IE6 working fine, but still missing dll file in OE.

Any suggestions please oh wise ones.

Cheers
Stowie

Using windows 98 SE.

Hi Stowie

Try the following:

Enable Show Hidden files and folders:
Windows 98:
Open Windows Explorer,
View > Folder Options > View tab,
Verify that Show hidden files and folders is checked.

Find Files:
Start > Find > Files and Folders,
In the Find Field,
Key in:
*.dbx
be sure to include the asterick.
in the "Look in" field make sure your "C" drive or main harddrive is selected, click on Find Now.

Locate the Folders.dbx file and rename it: Folders.old

Attempt to start Outlook Express.

If Outlook Express still fails to start, using Windows Explorer, navigate to the directory where the Folders.dbx file is located
and Move not copy all the .dbx files to a folder on your Desktop.

Attempt to start Outlook Express.


If Outlook Express still refuses to start, what method did you use to reinstall Internet Explorer?

How many Identities did you have in Outlook Express?
