Work want me to categorise each Appointmen/meeting and tasks so I can show how much time is spent on each. I know I need ACT! but I only have Outlook, so any idea would be great. Thanks
  • 5. Outlook 2000 hangs when inserting attachments
    Anyone heard of this problem? Outlook 2000 intermittently hangs when inserting attachments from the file open dialog when searching network drives. It only happens in a particular folder on a windows 2000 server share. It's got some 121 folders in the location and, if OL decides to hang, will do so at the same point each time - as if Outlook is trying to refresh the screen just before you go and choose your file to insert. This is the same version of Oulook on all other machines in the business and no others appear to have this problem. It's been reinstalled etc. etc. No other network shares are a problem. Local drives do not cause the problem. I can't see it being a corrupt file/folder - it's too random. It happens about 1 time in 3 on average. There just doesn't seem to be a consistent pattern that I can find! Thanks,

We added the following to the registry covering Outlook 2000 and XP on the 
effected machines (following Microsoft's related Technet Article see 
 http://www.**--****.com/ ;en-us;839226) and all 
seems to be okay:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

1.New Mail Notice Issue w/ XP (SP1 & SP2) and Outlook (2000 & XP)

We are experiencing the following issue, similar to one that was reported 
here by Jeff ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM ) on 12/30/04. Here are the details:

Messages do not appear in Outlook inbox right away. There is a delay. 
Sometimes if the user clicks another message open or highlights a folder, 
all the new mail will appear in the inbox.

1. Remote office w/ less than 50 users, connected via full point-to-point 
T1, no UDP or NetBIOS filtering, all IP communications wide open - no 

2. Workstations are XP with SP1 as well as XP with SP2 installed, firewall 
disabled via registry settings in login script:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00




3. Exchange server is 5.5, Outlook 2000 and 2002 (XP), do not have 2003.

Have researched all Microsoft TechNet KB articles dealing with UDP issues 
and they do not appear to apply. The closest article matches are KB article 
#'s 839226 and 319572. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance. 

2.MOS 2003, Office XP and Updating to SP1, SP2

Friend has MOS 2003 one drive. Custom installed Office XP Word and
Powerpoint only on another. *Wonder if problem  was created by not
installing the Older Version first--have seen the caveats including here
including Bob Buckland's recent  important point that an "oldest to newest"
install prevents file mismatches from shared/common files. XP was upgrade
version  from Office 2000. In trying to install SP's (SP1 and SP2) when
asked for XP Pro CD receives error message:

*"The file 'Microsoft Office XP Professional' is not a valid installation
package for the product Microsoft Office XP Professional.  Try to find the
installation package 'PRORET.MSI' in a folder from which you can install
Microsoft Office Professional.'*

What's best course to overcome the error message?  TIA.

3.How to Setup Office XP Sp1 and Sp2 Admin Updates

I have the image on a shared directory on a server 
containing the files for a Office Xp Install.  I have 
downloaded the Office XP Sp1a and Sp2a admin updates.  
However, I am having trouble updating my install to 
include the Service packs.  I hope to do this because I am 
going to deploy Xp to 100+ desktops and I don't want to 
run the Service Packs manually.  I have microsofts web 
page with the following instructions to type:

[start] msiexec /p [path\name of update MSP file] 
/a [path\name of MSI file] 
SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* [path\name of log file]

The server is a Win2k as are the desktops.  Do I need the 
[] when typing the command.  I have tried it both ways and 
had no luck.  If anyone has a easier way, Please advise.  
Of if someone can provide a sample in which I can just 
edit for example the path, server share location etc. that 
might help.  Thanks in advance.

4.Office 2003 Using XP Updates (SP1, SP2, etc.)???

Hello All,

I'm a little concerned here.  Immediately after upgrading to Office
2003 I scanned for updates at offic.microsoft.com.  Without realizing
it I gave it the go-ahead to install the selected updates.  Half way
through SP2 I realized that it was updating with XP SPs and critical
patches.  At one point it even asked to install the XP disk (which I
did since I was in the middle of an update).

Is this to be expected?  And, if not, what should I do?  A complete
uninstall and re-install?

Thanks for all the help!


5.Office XP SP1 and SP2 Updates always ask to accept EULA

Hi, Jarrod,

You don't mention what operating system you're using; did you try to log in
as the administrator and accept the EULA?
