Solved: MS Office Outlook 2007 Won't Open

Q: Solved: MS Office Outlook 2007 Won't Open

When I started my computer this morning Windows ran a disk check on my back up flash drive (K:\). When I tried to open Outlook in MS Office 2007 I got the following error message:

"Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The file K:\Personal\Email Addresses Backup.pst is not a personal folders file."

This has happened before so I tried what I've done before. (1) I've tried to repair MS Office using the program cd but that hasn't helped. (2) I tried starting MS Office while holding the Ctrl key so that I could get to the Repair command in Help but that didn't work either. (3) I ran scanpst.exe on the Backup.pst file and it repaired it. That allowed me to open Outlook and over 1,500 emails began to download (from my ISP's server I guess).

I suspect that Outlook is using the backup file as its primary source for my Contacts (individuals and distribution lists) and wonder if anyone can help me get those items into the Outlook program itself. Last time time this happened I received a message saying that the K:\Personal\Email Addresses Backup.pst file wasn't available but the program ran anyway.

Any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Solved: MS Office Outlook 2007 Won't Open

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)


All of the other applications work, just not outlook. I get a message that says, "The application failed to initialize properly (0x80000003) Click on OK to terminate the application." I'm running XP SP3.

When I try to open a 2007 Word or Excel document I recieve as an attachment in Outlook 2003, I get the following message:
"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed". Office 2007 compatibility pack was installed and it still did not work.

I then uninstalled Office 2003, uninstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack and then I ran CCleaner to clean up the registry. I updated my OS (currently has Windows XP SP3) with all updates, reinstalled Office 2003, installed Office 2003 SP 3 and then reinstalled the Office 2007 compatibility pack.

I still get the same message when I try to open an Office 2007 attachment in Outlook 2003.

OS is Windows XP SP3 fully updated

Any suggestions?

I've searched for a fix for a message that I get from time to time in Outlook which tells me to find and run scanpst.exe. I followed some advice in a post in a closed thread on the Business Application forum and found this file but I couldn't get it to run. This may have occurred because the poster gave instructions for XP - I've been unable to find similar instructions for Vista.

I am using Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, and in it, I use four different folders that fall under the 'Inbox' folder. These folders have rules attached to them so that when particular e-mails come through, they get placed in to these four folders.

Now, because of that, I never get an e-mail notification in the system-tray. I never get the transparent display or the little envelope icon, because essentially no e-mails ever go directly to my 'Inbox'.

Is there any way to set it up so that e-mails that I receive in these four folders will still give me an e-mail notification?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Solved: Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 E-Mail Notifcations

This is possible.

Follow the steps :

1. Outlook --> Tools --> Rules & Alerts
2. Highlight the Rule and Goto "Change Rule" drop down.
3. Edit Rule Settings.
4. In the Rules Wizard , click Next on the first screen
5. Scroll down all the way to the bottom on the second.
6. You will find an option - display a Desktop alert
7. Enable this option.
8. Go Next if you need more changes or Finish.
9. Close and reopen Outlook.

I have a client who uses Office Outlook 2007 (which I recently installed over her old Outlook 97) for her email. It's been working perfectly for almost two months. However about two weeks ago, she realized the program will not send emails.

I've tried this method (and other variations of it following the same principle), but it has not helped. Furthermore, I've tried turning off Avira Antivir Guard to stop it from scanning incoming or outgoing messages. That didn't help either.

I would prefer not contacting the email provider unless absolutely necessary as I doubt this is an issue on their part. Could anyone help me get this working?

I have just tried to load Outlook Express to check ma emails and it crashes on startup and it will not load. I rebooted my machine after the various installs, but it is still not working.

This is a D630 newly formatted Dell laptop and the user has had it about a month. Yesterday she noted that opening any Office 2007 program (but particularly Word) was very slow. I checked it out, and noted that in the bottom left of the Word document, when first opening Word it said " Contacting C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office..... for information

Outlook said the same thing.

Other users that started at the same time as she did and using the same model of laptop (and same image on the laptop) are fine and not experiencing this problem.

I disabled antivirus and all add ons, no change.
I ran diagnostics, which found one issue (that it did not name) that it said it fixed, but no change
I took out the printer drivers, no change
I repaired office, no change
I checked for any recent updates, nothing since June 19th. She has the latest Office updates (inc SP2)
I checked she didn't have something strange in the TCP/IP bindings.

Unable to open MS Outlook 2007 - Please Help!
Hi All,

Would really appriciate any help I can get with the following!

I am unable to open Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. I keep getting an error message everytime I try to open the application. The error message is:

"Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. Errors have been detected in the file C:\Documents & Settings\my name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst. Quit Outlook and all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox repair tool (Scanpst.exe) to diagnose and repair errors in the file.

I located the Inbox repair tool and the Scanpst.exe file, however, there is no "C:\Documents & Settings\my name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst" file anywhere on my hard drive. I performed a search of my hard drive for any *.pst files, and nothing displayed. Is this file named something else for Outlook 2007?

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.

Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".

I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.

I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

On my Win7 PC I have open office and on my WinXP Laptop I have Office 2007. Both have one major problem: the spell-checker does not work regularly for English and does not work at all for other languages, e.g., French, Spanish, or German.

I did read other threads regarding this problem and I did go through the routine of Tools-option-writing aids; and marked "check spelling as you type." I also have my abc on the menu bar checked and the adjacent ABC is underlined with a red wavy line (which means the spell-checker is active).

The problem is that when I activate the Eng language in my task bar and type a wrong word, it will be marked with a wavy red line-- which means my spell checker works for English. Now while I still have English on my language bar, if I type a word in Spanish, the spell-checker doesn't work because the foreign word is not marked with red-wavy line. If I change the language in my task bar to Spanish and write a wrong Spanish word, again the spellchecker doesn't seem to work.

Anybody has any idea what seems to be the problem?

I greatly appreciate your help.

I have a frustrating situation with a brand new machine-2 months old. Can someone please help me diagnose its problem and find a solution? I’m out of tricks.

Around 11/16/2009 the browser (I use Fire Fox, always updated) would stop displaying content at some point in the day. Just white pages with the target URL in the address bar and page tab.

At first this happened once a day, then twice, then every 3 hours, then every 3-4 searches.

To regain the browser function I have to re-start…not just close and re-open the browser.

When FFox is down, so is IE.

I also began having trouble with email newsletters from Mediapost about the same time, so I thought it was something to do with Outlook 2007 or their emails. Ran Outlook in safe mode. No change. Created a rule to quarantine their emails to a folder. No change. Closed the preview pane. No change.

I downloaded and ran: Malwarebytes, Spybot Search and Destroy, Superantispyware, AdAware. ATF temp file cleaner. A couple of them found ad tracking cookies…but I get Advertising industry newsletters so of course they and their web pages are loaded with tracking cookies. No Malware.

All clean. No Change.

If I open only Firefox after a re-start, I can browse for hours without issue.

If I then open Excel or Word, or eventually both, I can still browse without issue.

If I open Outlook First, alone, or last in the stack, the browser will fail to display within 4 searches. (Except today when it was opened last and I stopped count... Read more
