I installed an upgrade for a program called PCLaw on a client machine.  PCLaw includes a component called "Outlook Connection Manager" that allows it to interface with Outlook (PST or Exchange).  When I fire up Outlook, I get the following error:

The add-in "C:\PROGRA~1\ACG\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll" could not be installed or loaded. This problem may be resolved by using Detect and Repair on the Help menu.

No luck with Detect and Repair.  Here's my question: The pointer referenced in the error message, "C:\PROGRA~1\ACG\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll" is stale.  ploutplg.dll exists, but it's now located in "C:\PROGRA~1\LexisNexis\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll".  I can't figure out where the pointer lives.  I searched the registry, and the only pointer I found was to "C:\PROGRA~1\LexisNexis\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll".  I also searched "C:\Program Files" for a file containing the following string: "ACG\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll"  No luck.  Where doe this pointer live?

Have you tried in Outlook:
Tools>Options>Othertab> Advanced Options button> COM Add-Ins
andremoving the old and adding the new DLL that way yet?
