Late binding to Outlook error in Access 2010

I'm getting the error
429 - ActiveX component can't create object
when using

    Dim appOutlook as object
    Set appOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

This used to work OK but now fails whether Outlook is already running or not.
Any suggestions?

Have you checked to see if there are any broken references?

Is it any better if you try the following?

Chris
Dim appOutlook as object
        Set appOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application", "localhost")

Hmmm implies that there is an issue with outlook itself to me.  The problem is you say outlook is ok, will have to look into it but I am guessing a repair / re-insall type solution!

YUp looks like the first recommendation is a repair and then retry
