outlook gives error when attempting to open .PST file
Posted on 2012-04-05
I've installed office 2010 on a new laptop.
Outlook opens the standard .PST file just fine, but when I want to add another .PST file that I use for archiving, I cannot even reach the open .PST dialog.
When I click on "File" tab, then "Open", then "Open Outlook Data File" I get the error "cannot find this file. Verify the path and file name are correct".
So I can't even choose the .PST to open.
Is there something in the registry I need to reset?
I've tried repairing office 2010 from the install disk.
I even uninstalled and then re-installed it.
all to no avail.
please help. :-)
