    I have an extended desktop across multiple monitors. Well now after installing Office 2007 Beta 2 when I click new message under Outlook I get two windows displayed one is the untitled message for Outlook message I'm composing but the second is a Word window that appears and doesn't go away until you close Outlook completely, you can't close the window or minimize it either. Looks like the programmer forgot to set the Word window to hide/visible = .f. when your creating/editing messages in Outlook. Of course with a Windows desktop with one monitor this doesn't happen. Let's fix this bug. -- Curt

lost password to password-protected personal folder

Postby RGFuIEcu » Fri, 16 Sep 2005 01:31:27 GMT

My assistant sent me a password-protected .pst file that opens without 
requiring entry of a password on her computer. However, a password is 
required to open the file on my computer. Is there a way for her to retrieve 
the lost password on her computer? If not, is there a way to transfer the 
data to another, non-password protected .pst file?

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

There is a handy tool to strip the password of a pst-file. The funny thing is 
that this tool wasn't even written for stripping the password of a pst-file 
but for upgrading the pst-file to a newer format. Stripping the password was 
just a (handy) side effect. Don't use this tool for any illegal activities!!!

Read the pstread.txt file included in the zip before using the utility!

Thanks so much for your helpful reply. 

I downloaded and tried to install the application you recommended. But when 
I left-clicked on the .exe file to open it, a screen momentarily displayed, 
then closed. I tried entering the command "PST19UPG -x filename.pst" in the 
Run field (accessed from the Start menu), and that didn't work. 

I wonder what I'm missing??

Thanks again for your prompt and helpeful reply!

I have another question with which you may be able to help , if you're 
willing to take the time and effort: 

I have a corrupted .pst file (containing vital data), which scanpst.exe and 
another repair utility, EasyRecovery Professional, would not fix. 
Unfortunately, I do not have a another copy of this corrupted file. 

 Is there another way to recover the data? What application or service would 
you recommend?

I appreciate your help.

Well, in this situation you might find Active@ Undelete tool useful. It
is simply the most powerful restore tool I've ever used. Really
