Hi,
I have outlook 2003 and my inbox files appear to have corrupted preventing me from opening outlook.
The error asks me to locate scanpst.exe and run the fix utility.
I can't locate this file anywhere and have even tried the repair option on the installation disc.
Any other ideas before I'm forced to reinstall..?

Many Thanks

Matt

You should have the file already.  

To use the Inbox Repair tool, locate one of the folders by using Microsoft Windows Explorer, and then double-click the Scanpst.exe file.

The Scanpst.exe file is typically located in one of the following folders:
<disk drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\
<disk drive>:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033
