Experts.  Here is a puzzle.  I have a client using Office 365 and outlook will crash randomly when sending emails.  The event viewer error points to mso.dll, version: 0.0.0.0,  as the culprit.  He is running Win 7 64.  I've removed office, manually removed any leftovers, and reinstalled but still get this error.  I've disabled add-ins and made sure compatability mode is off on outlook.exe.  The mso.dll doesn't exist in the location indicated in the error below (C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Office15\mso.dll).

When you uninstalled Office, did you use the uninstaller provided by Microsoft?  If not, KB2739501 is the article that comes with a "Fix It" to help you get rid of Office correctly.

The other day I noticed something similar with one of my clients.  I uninstalled and re-installed and the same problem was coming up.  Later (after many hours and almost ready to format the laptop), I noticed the resolution was not optimal.  I kid you not, I changed the resolution and that fixed the problem.  Changed it back to what it was and the darn thing broke again.  Why?  Not really sure.  I sent Microsoft a question through my support pack and they were able to replicate the issue with head scratches.

This may not fix your problem but this was one of the weirdest things I have dealt with in a while.  I am still going after the root cause analysis on that one.

Thanks.  Yes I used the Fix It tool in KB2739501, rebooted and then went through the manual process to make sure everything was gone.

I've tried several other things and no luck.  I was somewhat able to reproduce the error but rebooting or refreshing outlook it would go away.  To appear again a while later.

Well finally reloaded the system with an OEM Image.   Had previously used the HP system provided image.  I'm still not sure what was causing the issue

My brother; sometimes burning the haystack is the only way to find the needle in it.

I'm glad is working.  It had to be a corrupted registry if that fixed it.

Had to do a full system reload from an OEM version.  Something must have been wrong with the HP version or some conflict with some preloaded HP software.
