Outlook is looking for Outlook Express

When starting Outlook 2000 it announces that it needs Outlook Express.  Installed OE but still get the same message. Uninstalled and reinstalled - same result. No functional deterioration, but just nagging message. Any suggestions? (XPPRO, OE6)

report back if you got it working.
Outlook may also require Outlook express if you are reading any newsgroup .. Are you doing that because outlook doesnot has the functionality to read newsgroups.

Followed the registry key (which was for NT and OL 5. Mine is XP and 6, however, glaring at me was an "IsInstalled" set to 0 which I then set to 1 and all's well.
