I have just upgraded to Office 2007 professional. I get the following error when I start outlook.

The Add-in "mobile phone tools" (C:\Program Files\mobile PhoneTools\Outl97.dll) cannotbe loaded and has been disabled by Outlook. Please contact the Add-in manufacturer for an update. If no update is available, please uninstall the Add-in.

My problem is how to uninstall the Add-in. I have removed the software (Motorolla phone tools), but this hasn't removed the add-in.  Please help me get rid of this annoying error message.

If that doesn't work for you, you can edit the setting in the registry...
Start->Run->Regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins
Under the Addins - change the LoadBehavior to 0 for the Addin you want disabled (I only add this because Add-in Manager isn't available in the 2k3 location on my system).

Greetings Aker_Kvaerner,

In Outlook 2007, the Addin Manager is in a different location than Outlook 2003.  Go to Tools > Trust Center > Add-Ins and disable the Motorola addin.

Best wishes, war1

Aker,

No addin in Trust Center.  Then Create a new Outlook profile.

Aker, any update?  Did creating a new Outlook profile fix the problem?
