I have a computer on which I'm unable to install pfbackup.

Dell P4/3.0
Windows XP Pro
Microsoft Office 2007 (SP1)

When I attempt the installation the first error says, "Setup has detect that you already have a version of Personal Folders Backup installed..."
Next error is "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed".
I can't remove the program via Add/Remove because it doesn't show up.  Also not appearing in Windows Install Cleanup.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

pogivoco,

How are you doing?

I know this applies to 2000-2002, but I think it might work for 2007 as well:

Try this:

In the above, if you are using outlook 2007 (then use Version 12), which is as follows:
regsvr32 "Drive:\program files\microsoft office\office12\addins\outbak.dll"

Hope this helps,
Kevin
