Windows Installer Runs every time I start Outlook 2003



  • 1. Contact>Activity list + Active Directory
    I've got a user that went to a friend's workplace, where they also have AD implemented. There, when they go to Contacts, open a contact, and click the Activity tab, they see a complete history of every email they've sent to them and able to track it. However, on our site, the contact list is mostly people from outside our AD domain(on mine, I have only one person, the user in question has over 600). The user really only wants the ability to track messages. I've got a couple Outlook books(Outlook 2003: Step By Step and Outlook 2003: Inside Out) but I can't find any information relating to the Activity tab behaving how she's telling me it does, nor any information about how it behaves in an AD domain. Any help?
  • 2. Exchange 2003 pop3 access - duplicate downloads
    Hi, I have one remote user connecting to our exchange 2003 server using Outlook 2003 via pop3. Outlook is configured to leave a copy of the messages on the server. I realise RPC over HTTP is superior Today the user opened outlook and its trying to download 400+ emails dating back 6 months ago. Any ideas?
    I have set up my email signature in Outlook 2003. When I sned a new email the signature block look OK single spacing and my signature, when I hit reply to emails mys signature disappears and the signature block text is all double spaced. Would appreciate any advice. Thanks
  • 4. use outlook
    Hi, I have just installed Microsoft Outlook. I have also imported the email account settings from Microsoft Express. However, I still keep receiving messages on Outlook Express and not on the Outlook. How do I stop Outlook express from receiving my emails and have Outlook receive it. I have also tried to remove the email account from Outlook Express - and then neither Outlook Express or the Outlook were receiving messages. Help!!! BV

Windows Installer Runs every time I start Outlook 2003

Postby T2xz » Sat, 29 Jan 2005 03:27:04 GMT

Everytime I start my MS Office Outlook 2003 I get a Windows Installer dialog 
that says Preparing to install.  This takes up to a minute or so before it 
goes away and then I can use Outlook.  When researching MS online support I 
found a similiar problem with Visual Studio which sounds very similiar.  It 
talks about removing a MSO.dll and then reinstalling office 2003.  I do not 
have Visual studio .Net on my machine but I find the Mso.dll.  Has anyone had 
a similiar problem?  If so, can you help direct me in a way to get mine 
resolved.  Thanks!
