I can't run/install any version of microsoft office outlookon a windows xp computer.  It had office 2000 on it and outlook 2003.  I ran an upgrade to office 2007 and when I tried to run outlook it I got this error.  Error OLMAPI32.dll.  I went back to try to unistall office but it wouldn't uninstall.  I then deleted all of the Office files I could find and any registry entries I could find for it.  I then tried to install office 2000 but when I ran the setup it just wouldn't start the install.  It did nothing.  I then installed a copy of office 2007 small business that I had and it wanted to upgrade office.  I went ahead and let it do that selecting the option to remove all previous versions of office.  It installed but when I ran outlook I still got the same error.

There's a hotfix with an updated version of said file you can obtain from here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937608

Alternatively try obtaining latest Office updates. My internet's having a hissy fit so I can't give you a link but just google it, it's a page that works in the same way as windows update.
