Outlook'97 fails to register...
Posted on 1998-09-03
As anyone encountered the following problem:
While installing Outlook'97, the process crashes telling me that "OUTLCOMM.DLL failed to register itself...", then I am told that "The program did not complete its installation".
Now, I cannot "remove it", and all attempts to re-install it results in the same message.
I was installing MS Office Pro '97 SP1... after failing, I installed each component individually... and all went fine until I reached Outlook'97... I always get the same essage. Is it possible that my registry is trashed ?
If I try to activate Outlook'97, I receive a message telling me that "MAPI cannot find EMSMDB.DLL...", I have EMSMDB32.DLL on my computer, but no-joy on the version it seems to be looking for.
My computer is tied to a NOVELL LAN, and I am running Client32. This LAN is bridged to a NT 4 LAN... I see the NT LAN, I can access the files, but I cannot install and/or run Outlook'97.
Any ideas ???
