Can't start scanpst.exe file OLMAPI32.dll is missing

Microsoft Office 2010 installed on desktop with Windows 7-64.  I cannot run scanpst.exe file OLMAPI32.dll is missing.  I have misplaced my Office 2010 CD.  Running Office repair does not solve the problem.

How can I download OLMAPI32.exe?

I also suggest you find your disc. What happens WHEN (not if) your hard drive fails?  

You need to reinstall Office.

Without the installation disk, you may not be able to resolve this issue. if you can't find it, the ultimate solution may be to uninstall office, buy the latest version and a download direct;y from Microsoft and install that.

The 2013 version allows you to log into your Microsoft account and download it anytime you change PC's or need it.  This is a great solution to not being able to find your installation disk.

I've seen this before and tried calling Microsoft.  I didn't have a downloaded version and they were no help with that situation.

Thanks to all who responded.  I've now found two versions of the file OLMAPI32.dll file between my two Microsoft Windows 7-64 systems, both with Office 2010 Professional installed.  They are different sized files and were in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office/office 14 folders.  

I've placed copies of them in the  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 14 folders where the error message stated it was looking for them.  

I got the same error message in using either file on both systems I tried it on. It turns out I have left my Office 2010 disk at our winter residence, out of state.  I'll be able to recover it this fall when we return.  In the mean time, I'll consider obtaining Office 2013 Professional to install on the systems to see if the error will be resolved.  The scanpst.exe application had been working on both systems and the error appeared on both systems at about in the same time frame.  

I appreciate everyone's input.  Frankly, I'm uncertain as to how the assistance points should be distributed.  Divided equally??

If you uninstall Office 2010 and obtain Office 2013 and install it, that will resolve your problem. I have Office 2010 on Windows 7 64-bit and SCANPST works and I have Office 2013 on Windows 8.1 64-bit and SCANPST works there as well.

So a new installation of Office will fix your issue.
