Are you actually running the 64-bit version of Office? Either way, the scanpst.exe file will be in the Office program directory.

For 32-bit Office on a 64-bit Windows installation it would be:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14"

For 64-bit Office on 64-bit Windows, I'm guessing it would be:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14"

I prefer not to run 64-bit Office since I've encountered a lot of issues with it in the past, but either way, "scanpst.exe" should be in those directories depending on your setup.

The 64bit version Outlook uses the same data format as the 32bit version of Outlook.

What is the error message generated by the scanpst?

Note most of them only works with 32bit Outlook so you need to copy your PST file to a computer with 32bit Outlook installed, then run the various tools, then copy the fixed PST file back to your 64bit computer.
