Out of Office Assistant Failing

I have a single user that when she tries to open the out of office assistant, gets the following error message:

"Your out of office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later"

My organization has about 85 individuals running Outlook 2007 connecting to an Exchange 2007 Server.  She is the only one with the issue.  She is different in that she is connecting back to our location via a Microsoft VPN where as everyone else is physically on our LAN.

I found the Microsoft Hotfix KB 954574 which I thought might address my issue, however when I try to run it, I get the following error message:

"The expected version of the product was not found on the system."

The user can get her mail, no issue, but the Out of Office Assistant is a no go.  I found quite a few articles addressing this, but all seem to handle the issues which would appear to affect all users, not just one.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
