outlook 2007 calendar breaks with exchange 2010

Posted on 2010-09-02
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
We are running Exchange 2010 with about 40 Outlook 2007 clients.  calendar started out working fine for everyone (for about a week) but now two have stopped working.  They ran for many months without problem when attached to Exchange 2000.  when you click on the calendar, it does not come up at all, it causes outlook to restart with generic error "microsoft office outlook has encountered a problem and needs to close"  I tried the office diagnostics  (found nothing), ran a repair of office from control panel (didn't help) uninstalled/reinstalled office (didn't help). installed all Windows and Office patches (didn't help).

Is this problem on ALL the client computers ?
Do you have any errors in the windows eventlog ? (on both client and server)

Try recreating the Outlook profile to test?

Does Outlook Web App work OK? That's a key test.

I'd recommend trying each of the /clean* parameters identified here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/command-line-switches-for-microsoft-office-outlook-2007-HP001218589.aspx

If that doesn't help, create a new Outlook profile.

If that doesn't do it, let us know.

If OWA works fine, and creating a profile on your PC works fine, then I would be suspicious of the user's profile (Windows profile, not MAPI profile) on that PC. You might try deleting that and then recreating it all for the profile.

I found a trojan infection on the PC that I could not remove.  I plan on formatting the drive and starting over.
