Windows search and MAPI32.dll problem

I recently downloaded Window search 4.0.

When I start it up I get

       The ordinal 49 could not be located in the dynamic link library MAPI32.dll

Windows search says indexing is complete but it hasn't actually indexed anything.

I tried running fixmapi.exe (Start, Run, %systemroot%\system32\fixmapi.exe  <ENTER>) but this did nothing.

I'm running windows XP SP2 and outlook 2007

Advice please
Thanks Mike

Try copying MAPI32.dll from i386 folder (from your original CD if you can't find it).

Apart from that, I'd try uninstalling desktop search then reinstalling it.

do what jaydee said, if that doesn't help then uninstall MSN Toolbar, the file is associated with that.
