Hi all,
I have a client With a Win XP SP3 box.  We installed Office 2K7 a few weeks ago and everything was fine.  Yesterday the box did some auto updates and Outlook disappeared.  Not just the icons, but all of it.  When I tried to reinstall, the only thing not available is Outlook.  I've never seen this before.  Help!
Thanks,
jwhite

Have you checked the install path for the .exe?

Yes.  I searched the entire drive for occurrences of Outlook also.  Nothing but .pst's and some offline backups.

I ended up uninstalling Office 2K7 which uncovered Office 2K3 which I also uninstalled and was finally able to get Office 2K7 to do a full install.  Once it completed, Outlook was back and it had all the mail settings in place to work again.  Go figure.
