Cannot open Outlook 2010

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit machine with Office home and business installed. I connected to my exchange server and setup my mail profile and downloaded my mail without any hitches. When I closed outlook and reopened it a while later, I get the famed error "Cannot open Outlook".
When I go to my Mail32 icon in my control panel, it says I don't have enough resources.
I have tried the Outlook /resetnavpane, the Outlook /safe and the /safe:1-4 commands, and I deleted the Profile key in the registry with no change. What can I be missing?
Thanks in advance.

Interestingly, I just changed it to compatibility mode and it works. Why would that be?

Update: I have turned it off of compatibility mode and now I can get in. It is loading mail. What is the glitch with Outlook 2010 and Windows 7 64bit?
