bad removal of Office 2000 can't get back to Outlook 2000 from XP Small Biz...
Posted on 2003-10-29
I was running Mic. Office XP Small Business with Outlook 2000 just fine. Needed to get Access installed from my disk of Office 2000. Must have accidentally installed the Outlook version on that disk along with the Access 2000. When tried to remove that, no go. (Tried becuase got this error message: "Unabler to open you default e-mail folders. Ther .dll file for the information service could not be found. MAPI was unable to load the information service PSTPRX.dll . Be sure the service is correctly installed and configured." Completely removed XP Small Biz, tried to use Office 2000 disk to access removal utility there, but it would not run (option was avaialble on left of scrren but could not select it...). Reinstalled WinXP Small Biz again, ran 'fix' utility from within Outlook 2000, still no go.
How DO I do a complete cleanout of Office 2000 and get my Outlook 2000 from Small Biz back? Once that is done, is there no way to safely install Access 2000 from my Office 2000 disk?
thanks in advance,
