situation.

Outlook 2000
Exchange 2003 and exchange 5.5 sharing public folders,Free/busy time over Microsoft Exchange Server Inter-Organization Replication

some user get a share.exe error by opening calenar items
some of the users use a customized Outlook calendar form

by opening the OL form (same if the original OL Calendar form or a customized form) user get an erro message telling:

outlook was not able to open the form, share.exe need to run on your pc to be able to open the file

according to MS , share.exe is not supported anymore
we are trying to understand the casue for this share.exe message on a Windows 2000 and Outlook 2000 client

can a Microsoft Exchange Server Inter-Organization Replication in between a Exchange2003 and 5.5 casue this error?
or, is it possible that the customized form used may casue a share.exe issue?

The "Share.exe" program that you're thinking of (with reference to "according to MS , share.exe is not supported anymore ") was used to support 16bit applications designed in pre-win9x systems.  If you're getting an error message about it, that suggests one of two things.

1) your custom form was designed a long time ago, and is in desperate need of upgrading
or
2) you have a virus that is using the built-in hooks for the old share.exe functions to infect your system.

My money is on the first option.

Thanks
the from is build to work on OL 2000,2003 and 2007
the form use latest technology

i worked on this issue the entier week.

it look like the "sahre.exe" error message is erroneusly sent by Microsoft.

by checking the way the error appear (Process Monitoring) i find a share violation by opeining the cached custom form on Doc-settings/user/local-seetings/Applications/Microsoft/OUtlook/FORMS

the tmp file stored on the IPM.appintment look to be lockt and cannot be opened

the reason? do not know...
it appears from time to time. in a not easy way to replicate
antivirus,other addin?OL Reminders ?

solution?

FORM Cache reload Registry to force a reload of the form

thanks
