You don't need FwcTool.exe

Outlook is already disabled from using the FWC to begin with.

It is changed right in the ISA MMC,....if memory serves me,...it is under General ---> Firewall Client Settings---->Applications.

Find "outlook"

Set it to "disabled=0" to enable it
or
Set it to "disabled=1" to disable it.

That is the exact opposite thing that you should be thinking.  You should never have to use the FwcTool.  I have never known of any good reason to do it since ISA2000,...but for whatever reason MS choose to keep it around.  The FWC config needs to be centrally controlled by the ISA Server.
