If I try to open an outlook item template I get the error:

can't open file: xxx.oft. The file may not exist, you may not have permission to open it, or it may be open in another program. Right-click the folder that contains the file, and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder.'

Even if I try to open it from windows-explorer I get this error. First outlook is opened (minimized) and then the message appears. I installed every possible option for outlook from office XP pro. Who can help me?
