GETTING ERROR WHEN LAUNCHING OUTLOOK

Hello,

  Everytime I try and launch Outlook from my desktop I get this Rundll error dialog box:

"An exception occurred while trying to run "Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL C:\PROGRAM~COMMON~1\System\Mapi\mlcfg32.cpl"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Good point, sunray.  Which do you think should be done first?  Sometimes an update will overwrite a problem file.

When i see this error in one of the MS KB, they have asked to do an update to see if that would work..

May be depending on the version of outlook the user has got , he should go about doing either of the one first.
Your link gives it for outlook 2000 so if he has got version above that then he can do the update first and then check your comment.. I guess your comment is mainly to reinstall/repair outlook which can be avoided as the first step..
