Outlook Express 6 problems
Posted on 2001-06-04
I know that this is a beta program and I shouldve asked a question about it before I installed Internet Explorer 6 into my system as I did a stupid thing and installed it into my main root rather than a beta specific root folder that i could at least bypass if I ran into problems.
Now the problem is that I have finally lost it with IE6, and have opted to uninstall it with the special uninstall feature that comes with it option for the option of reverting back to my original IE setting before I installed IE6. Its worked for the Internet Explorer part but now I cannot use OE at all - incidentally it reverted me back to IE5.5, even though I was using IE5, it doesnt really matter but I just thought that itd be better to tell you. I had thought of re-installing IE5.5 from a cd-rom but unfortunatly I have been kicked off my isp and now I have little or no online time because of costs, so I cannot afford the cost of staying online for 5 hours to download IE5.5 again.
Whenever I attempt to use OE I get two error messages which say:
"Outlook Express could not be started. The application was unable to create the font cache object. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk is full. Contact Microsoft support for further assisstance. (0x8007000E)
Outlook Express could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be initialized. Outlook Express may be not be installed correctly."
Is there anything I can do to rectify this other than having to revert back to using that horrible dodgy as hell IE [& OE] 6 beta?
