"Access Violation" when trying to import OE5.0 address book to Outlook2K
Posted on 2000-02-23
Why do I get this feeling that Outlook is going to be the bane of my existence?
I moved from a Win98 machine to a Windows NT 4.0/SP4. I successfully transferred all my mail and address to the new machine, which uses Office 2000 and Outlook Express/IE 5.0. I forget exactly how I did it; probably manually. For reasons related to my other question (on creating a master calendar in Outlook 2000), I've started using Outlook, but I can't import the address book from OE 5.0 to Outlook 2000. When I try to do it from Outlook using File/Import and Export, I get an Dr. Watson "access violation." I've looked at the MS KB articles on the subject (Q196215 and Q249670, on importing WAB contact folders), but neither did the trick. I'm using Outlook in Internet Mail Only mode. Any ideas? Thanks to all.
