Programmatically check if outlook(mso) or outlook express(msoe) is installed?

Q: Programmatically check if outlook(mso) or outlook express(msoe) is installed?

so far i know 2 ways to check that
for outlook you can check the registry to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles
depending on os (check default value) if exist user configured outlook means installed
for express u could check for %APPDATA% + "\Microsoft\Address Book\" + %USERNAME% + ".wab" file (adressbook)
if exist user created profile

its working that way only prob now is the profiles are saved on a server
including HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ + document folder (appdata)
means if i login somewhere else and check for both they exist but outlook isnt installed there eg.!?
means i have to find a way to check if outlook is installed
(as msoe is allways installed i have just to check if HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command = msoe then test wab
that way i know its default mail client msoe is installed and default mail client
but mso(outlook) is harder
u could install office or mso single and checking registry for somethings i could use leads me allways to the {guid's}
and i have no clue how to read em
i found on ms website only that article
(1A = Microsoft Outlook 2002 but does that only work with mso2002?
the 1A if it changes it wouldnt help isnt there a easier way to check if outlook is installed on a computer whitout checking for office/outlook and all that garbage?
(outlook is on server btw) means cant check for the exe about installed or not
only HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry could help me as it is on each machine different and not saved from server
(i need that for a program that uses mapi and i want to know if the user has outlook/outlook express installed)
maybe someone can help me about that

Preferred Solution: Programmatically check if outlook(mso) or outlook express(msoe) is installed?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Programmatically check if outlook(mso) or outlook express(msoe) is installed?

Welcome to TSG.

I found a registry key at HKLM\Software\Clients\Mail that contains the list of selections on the IE properties programs tab for the default mail client. The main key has a "Default" value which contains the user's selection and points to a subkey by the same name. The Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express subkeys have an "Envelope" subkey which has a "CurVer" value but I'm not sure that means the current version of the program. I found this info just doing a cursory search of the registry -- I don't know how you would determine from this which version you have.

Good luck with your project. Hope this helps.

Hey, my dad accessed Outlook Express earlier today.
Then he got rid of AOL Instant Messenger.
Then he tried accessing Outlook Express again, but it said that MSOE.dll could not be accessed. We did a search for the file and it's still there.
He re-installed AOL Instant Messenger, restarted the computer and tried again but recieved the same error message.

I'm about to try copying the file from my computer and replacing it on his, but I don't want to mess anything up. Any suggestions?

Hello everyone,

my computer was overheating, crashed and as a result, whacked out an Outlook Express dll file, MSOE.DLL version 6.0.2900.5512 . I tried to install an older version of this file, but it didn't work. I also tried reinstalling XP SP3, but that didn't work, either!

I have quite a bit of valuable information in my contact list, in OE and desperately need to get it working again.

If anyone can help, I'd certaily appreciate it.

A:Outlook Express 6 getting MSOE.DLL error...

This error can occur if certain rules for handling emails are in place.

Try starting OE while disconnected from the internet, go Tools/Message Rules/Mail. Find any rules that include 'Do not download from server' or 'Delete from server' and clear the check box. Apply the changes and see if that helps.

When I try to open Outlook express I get the following error message:
*** Outlook Express could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be loaded***

The MSOE.DLL is located on my window system drive so how can I get it to load? For the record, another error occurred - which is probably related to the above - right after I booted up the following error appeared:

*** Unable to load the dynamic link library NWNP3.DLL Some or all of the following feature is not available: NetWare

I can't get into Outlook Express to see if anyone has e-mailed me on this matter so I will continue to check this site/thread. I hope someone can help. Thanks

I had a virus on my computer and in the process of getting rid of it something happened to my outlook express. When I try to open it I get this message

"Outlook Express could not be started. The application was unable to open Outlook Express message store. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk is full. Contact Microsoft support for further assistance. (0x8007007E, 126)"

"Outlook Express could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be initialized. Outlook Express may not be installed correctly."

Well I know for a fact I have plenty of memory and my disk space is not full. I think something has happened to the MSOE.DLL being deleted or missing. Is there anyway to get it back?

Outlook express (5.0) won't start from any location. I blame myself. Error message reads: msoe.dll could not load. I have win 98se 4.1-- browser:Internet Explorer 6.0
I was Tinkering in windows set up (control panel/add-remove prgms/windows set up) trying to free up space and, as I wasn't planning to call anybody, shut down address book. Bad move. I understand it is part of the organizational contact architecture used throughout windows. I re clicked address book but tooooo late, no outlook express. Here's a history of fixes I've tried.
Confirmed outlook .dbx files are not read only, from dos I've: run scanreg fix & scanreg restore and leaped back in time a couple of days, run scan disk, run win98 exe and reinstalled windows. Only thing that's changed is my vision from working on this thing so long.
I'd be grateful for any help on this problem. thanks, rcm

I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but I was removing excess programs (using Add/Remove Programs), and somhow can't launch Outlook Express as a result. I can still get my email through IE or Netscape, but there's no history. Even though I can see the file, MSOE.DLL, in the C:\Program Files\Outlook Express folder, it won't load. Is there an easy fix for this trouble, and is it likely I'll ever see my saved old emails again?

A:Win Outlook Express won't load: MSOE.dll error

Hi Speechtrainer and welcome to TSG.

When OE fails to work isn't the best time to try doing a backup, but this should do.

Click Start>Run>type %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities>OK. The folder that opens is the parent directory for all the OE Identities. Each folder with the random numbers and letters contains the Message Store for each Identity you have in OE.
Copy each of these to your desktop.

You can backup your Address book by Start>Run>type wab /a>OK. That should call up your Address book and then use File>Export to save it to a different location.

Before OE failed to load, was there any problem (crash or something) or simply one time it worked and then it didn't?

Have you recently made any changes to your software? This behavior generally manifests itself after upgrading/downgrading/changing IE, OE, or installing certain service packs. It can also occur if you remove the Windows Address Boox (which OE requires).

Provide some additional details and I can point you to the appropriate solution for your situation.

Welcome to TSG!
Will not have much time this morning since I have to leave early but OE Spell checker as IE spell Checker function use MS Word or MS Office spell checker. If neither are installed or are having a problem OE Spell check will not work or exhibit the the same error.
If you do not have Word or Office installed you will have to do so before it will work. If you do you may have a corrupted file or an error in the registry. Here is an example of the registry for the US spell version. Note the two files that are required.
Hopefully someone else will pick up on this problem, if not I will revisit later today.

Person # 1 has new computer with XP. unknown rams, IE 6, Compaq Computer, ISP Cable Modem.
Person # 2 has Windows 98, 64 Rams, IE 5, Off brand computer, ISP Netzero.

Problem: Outlook express will not recognise SPELL CHECK. It gives an error message on , #2 and it wont come up completely on #1

#2 has tried to reformat, it didnt work...still no outlook express. Has completely removed it, and downloaded it again, from MSN site, still wont get SPELL CHECK to work for him.
#1 has not done anything. He is waiting for me to give him an answer and come up and fix it.....YEA RIGHT!!!!!!!

Neither one of these persons do a lot of downloading, so I dont forsee any problems with interferrance on any files not being compatiable with outlook express.

these two Gentlemen desperately need spell check, because neither one of them can spell...no edjukashen I reckon???

Thanks for any help....Star Warrior

My wife and I both have Windows XP on our machines and she said she could not use Spell Check in OE.
So I went to "Help" and it stated, "Outlook Express uses the spelling checker provided with the following Microsoft Office programs. Word,Excel,and PowerPoint. If you do not have one of these programs installed , the Spelling command is not available".
The next thing I did was to download a trial of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007.
It has all these programs. After installing it I went back to OE and misstyped an email message then clicked on spell check and I got a box that stated "An error occurred while the spelling was being checked". I then clicked on "send" and got "the spell check on this document was halted. Do you want to send it anyway?".
So even with the Office Home and Student 2007 installed I am back to square one, can't use spell check in OE.
My question is can I do anything else in order to use the spell check in OE? without having to buy an expensive program that does not help in the trial version anyway. Or do I just forget using spell check.
I had no problems using it with Windows 98, it seems to me they always want to get in your pocket by having to buy something additional to make something else workable.
I sure would appreciate any information anyone could provide as to a way to bypass and somehow be able to use SpellCheck.

I would like to know if I can check if an email was sent from my outlook express account yesterday between 6pm and 8pm. Someone else had access to my computer at this time. If something was send (a very important doc) it would have been send from word via the Send to: Mail recipient option.

I called my ISP this morning but they can not help they tell me there is no records kept of my mails passing thought the mail sever and told my to check my outbox. Doh! I already did that first. If this document was sent, it would have obviously been deleted from my outbox.

Is there any other way? Is there a log kept on my computer anywhere that I can check down at code level - which I know absolutely nothing about btw.

I don't need to know the content as if there was anything sent I know what it would have been there is only one doc there that would be of interest to this person and it would have been sent to their email address.

Can anyone help. I would be so grateful.
Many thanks.
