How to repair problems in installed 2007 Office programs and features
You can use either of the following methods to detect and to repair problems that are associated with installed Microsoft Office programs and features, such as registry settings and missing installation files. You cannot use these methods to repair personal files, such as worksheets or templates.
Method 1: Run Office Diagnostics from a 2007 Office program
1.  Start the Office Diagnostics tool. To do this, use either of the following methods: " For a menu-based 2007 Office program, click Office Diagnostics on the Help menu.  
" For a ribbon-based 2007 Office program, follow these steps: a.  Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Program Options.
Note In this option, Program represents the name of the program.  
b.  In the Navigation Pane, click Resources.  
c.  Click Diagnose.  
 
2.  Click Continue.  
3.  Click Start Diagnostics.

If the Office Diagnostics tool identifies a problem, it tries to fix the problem.  
4.  When the Office Diagnostics tool finishes, click Close.  

Method 2: Run the Detect and Repair tool from Add or Remove Programs

There's nothing wrong with the Outlook application. By default, I don't think it previews audio. I was just hoping there might be a third-party plugin.

If you are running outlook 2007 on a Windows XP machine, then you will need to install a preview handler for Wav or audio files that works with Windows XP.
I havent been able to find any official preview handlers from MS, but I found this 3rd party software instead:

I have tested it and works very well on my computer

Good Luck !!
