When I attach a file to an email, "the addin c:\windows\system32\fxext32.dll could not be installed or loaded" comes up. I have tried detect and repair to no avail. Other than re-installing outlook, is there a fix?

Greetings, dsi8dsi !

1. You may need to add the extension of attachment to Level1Remove key to send the attachment

or

2. If no joy, an addin may be interfering. Disable Outlook Addins.  Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable the addins.

3. Check if an external program running in the background is interfering with Outlook. Check Firewall, antivirus, antispyware, antispam, and all Norton programs. Disable these programs one at a time.

4. Create a new Outlook profile.

5. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

6. If no joy, reinstall Outlook.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.

To resolve this issue, rename and re-create the Outlook Extend.dat file. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Quit all programs that are running.  
2. Click Start, and then click Search.
3. Click All files and folders.
4. In the All or part of the file name box, type extend.dat.
5. In the Look in: list box, click to select your hard disk.
6. Click Search.
7. In the search results, right-click the Extend.dat file, and then click Rename.
8. Type Extend.old, and then press ENTER.
9. On the File menu, click Close to exit the Search Results window.
10. Restart Outlook 2000.

The Extend.dat file is re-created when you restart Outlook 2000.
