Installing Outlook 2002
Posted on 2006-05-07
Ok I did a really stupid thing. I just got a new laptop and installed OUtlook 2002 on it. It was runnign perfectly no problems and then a few weeks later I needed to install my Office suite so i did. One thing I forgot to do was not install Outlook from the office suite as it was Office 2000. I didn;t realize until i started outlook later on that day I realized i messed up. So I uninstalled Outlook 2002 and then Office 2002. Reinstalled Outlook 2002 and it will not open my files. I have tried every combination possible to get outlook 2002 back on but I can;t so i have been using Outlook 2000 but i really need to get back into 2002. Any suggestions? Whenever i install Outlook 2002 and open it I get a message saying it cannot open my files make sure program is fully installed and do I want to open default folders? My guess is somewhere Outlook has gotten corrupted all my files are still there when I uninstall and reinstalled 2000 or 2002 but I just can't get 2002 to install and work properly to open my files? Any suggestions on how i can do this and not loose my existing data that is there?
