Outlook Backup Plugin was manually removed, but can't reinstall
Posted on 2011-10-06
Hi Outlook Experts,
Our Outlook backup plugin was installed a long time back on a workstaiton when it had Outlook 2003. This machine was upgraded to outlook 2007 at one point and the plugin was manually uninstalled. Now, the installer won't let us reinstall it saying it's already installed. We have checked the MS KB article on the subject and it says to re-register as Option 1 but we can't do that because the files were removed already from the Outlook 2003 folder (Office11). Option 2 is to manually extract the MSI from the .exe. Anyone recommend a tool to do that or a better method?
We are just trying to get the Backup Plugin reinstalled on Outlook 2007.
