A user is having a mapi32.dll issue.  Against my advice, he loaded the office 2007 beta on his laptop.  And now, he gets an error message saying that the mapi32.dll is corrupt or the wrong version.  I have tried running fixmapi and copying another mapi file into the directory.  Even reinstalling Outlook hasn’t worked.   If you have a suggestion, that would be appreciated also.

In most large companies, this would exempt you from even having to attempt to resolve this issue other than using the blanket statement of 'If it interferes with a production process, then we can re-image your pc to its original configuration.  Save the files you want saved to another location, then send us the pc'.

As far as a technical solution here, no idea.  If you wanted to spend time, you could copy mapi32.dll from a good machine, then unregister-paste-register on this box, however there may be dll dependancy issues with this 2007 release that would still cause problems, and still may require an un-install or re-image.

I had this problem with I had Office Basic 2003 and Office Accounting 2007 (trial version) installed at the same time. Outlook 2003 would not open and would give me the mapi32.dll error. I uninstalled/reinstalled Outlook 2003. Finally took off the trial 2007 version, took off 2003, reinstalled 2003 and all was well.
