Outlook 2016 error "Something Went Wrong and your search couldnt be completed"

Q: Outlook 2016 error "Something Went Wrong and your search couldnt be completed"

Ever since I let miscrsoft tech support into my outlook it has been behaving badly. They put my info in a pst file and it wasnt setup like that before.   Now my search function isnt working when I search for emails, tasks and contacts.  I get the error "Something Went Wrong and your search couldnt be completed".  I tried re indexing and that didnt help.  I tried deleting my deleted mail and that didnt work.  I dont know what to do.  Please help if you can.  

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2016 error "Something Went Wrong and your search couldnt be completed"

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.)

A: Outlook 2016 error "Something Went Wrong and your search couldnt be completed"

I've seen some posts suggesting a conflict with Malwarebytes.  Try uninstalling if installed.  Also updates KB4022725 and KB4022405 are being blamed for initiating the problem.  I'm looking at third party options to improve search.

Just recently and I dont know why but I cant open outlook Express..I have tried every thing and searched high and low. I have uninstalled outlook via Add/ Remove and still no joy.

I have read the Articles at mircosoft.com and tried the fixes from the registry etc but still no joy..

I have been to Active Deskyop and removed components as requested in the registry and still no joy.

these are the errors I get..

First one I try to open Outlook Express

Then when I click ok I get the following message..

Im using Windows Xp...most of the help I have read is for 2000 or Me or even 98.

Please help some one as its important I get it up and running..If not I guess a new install of XP will be a quick fix.

Thx in advance.

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!

I was using Outlook 2007 calendar and sync with google in my old computer. It worked fine. I did not successfully backup the outlook. Now, I am suing a new computer with vista. I am trying to sync google calendar with my outlook. It always pops this message out error:2016. I checked the error message online. It reads, "This error displays if you try to sync your events before signing up for Google Calendar. Please log in to Google Calendar at least once before using Google Calendar Sync." However, I tried logging in before I am doing sync, but it is still not working. Same error message pops up, always.

I am importing an Outlook 2016 generated .CSV contact list into a webmail email account but keep receiving the following error.

Unknown error for item "(Unknown)": Could not parse csv file - Reason : missing column name for column[92]

There are 92 columns and each one has a column name. 92 columns is what Outlook 2016 generates, most columns are empty, just the name. I had previously tried deleting columns with no data but still got the same error, and always for the last column.

Is there a trick to get this contact list imported successfully? I am trying to create a whitelist filter to reject all email where the FROM name isn't in my contact file. My .CSV file contains 162 rows.

I am baffled by this one, and hope someone can help. I've installed literally dozens of gmail accounts into Outlook for clients, but this one is giving me fits. Every time I try to enter the account into a new Outlook 2016, the program hangs and then gives me an error message about an IMAP error, saying "Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following:" with an error number and a link to "answers" from Google. Now, I know Outlook and Google very well. The suggestions they give are the ones I have already done:

enabled less secure apps access to the account
double-checked that the password is correct and logged into the account online
enabled IMAP connection in Gmail settings
logged in through the CAPTCHA site suggested, though no CAPTCHA appeared
checked to be sure that two-step verification is NOT turned on
created a brand new profile through the Mail section of Control Panel
entered suggested Gmail server and port settings manually
My method is to create a profile without an email account so that I'll have a pst file to contain contacts and calendar. Then, I add the email account. This is just crazy, I've never seen anything like it. Ideas would be most welcome!

As I explained in the Windows 10 forum, I thwarted the W10 install by doing a System Restore. It did restore to the date I had specified, and of course that was only a couple of weeks ago with everything normal in my computer. So I don't understand why after SR I have no more search engines. None at all! When I type something into the search bar on top next to browser window, nothing happens. That's when I realized all search engines are gone.
How do I fix this and why would it do that?
I had by the way asked a question concerning a possible virus, here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/586325/while-using-flash-player-chrome-froze-due-to-popup/
Could this possibly be related??

Visio files are received as attachments in Outlook 2016. Visio Viewer 2016 and IE11 are also installed on Windows 10 (1607).
Previewing the Visio file (VSD in this case) is successful. However, when you try to open the Visio file, IE11 attempts to open it (as expected) but only displays a blank page.
Does anyone know if there is a fix for this issue?   Other articles suggest that Visio Viewer 2016 does not support IE11.

"Patch Tuesday" broke our install of Outlook 365. It was working fine on Monday and on Tuesday it was hanging on "Processing." So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.

I fell asleep last night watching a movie and woke up this morning to my PC blue screening and it did it again on start up.
I looked at the dump file and found out it was the thrid time it had bsod'd over night so it was idle atleast one of the times.
im assuming memory problem but ive already ran memtest on all my memory before and they all passed individualy. possibly a driver issue?
all 3 dump files have been uploaded, any help that you could provide would be awesome.
and im not THAT computer savvy so i may need a walk through on what driver it is specificly or whatever it is.

It belongs to the Asus ATK0110 ACPI utility (if that's not available, try the AISuite or PCProbe)

Please run Driver Verifier (after updating the above driver) according to these instructions:

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista Startup Repair feature).

I reinstalled it yesterday and got the various updates from half-life and tried to play it when it came up with the error message

I have downloaded the latest drivers from nvidia, and have tried changing all of the graphics setting e.g. opengl, direct3c and software and it will not work with any of them.

Since i have played it before on my laptop I know it is possible to get it to work however I am at a loss on how to do it.

Can anyone tell me why my Outlook 2007 send/recieve pop-up box shows strange numbers of tasks completed when i press send/receive ? Before finally showing 2 out of 2 tasks it will show 2 out of 3 or 4 out of 6 etc.

I only have one email account - very basic. I was wondering if this has something to do with the process of setting up Outlook initially when it creates a .pst file which i then deleted and replaced with my own .pst file from my previous computer.

I don't seem to have any problem receiving or sending mail otherwise. Should I just ignore this and disable the send/receive progress box ?

A:Outlook 2007 Send/Receive Progress # out of 6 tasks completed


Welcome to TSG!

When the Outlook Send/Receive Progress window pops up, click the Details >> button.

You'll get a window like the image below (email ids redacted) which will give you a better idea of what's going on. As you can see, my Outlook checks 6 addresses. A Send and a Receive is done for each address, accounting for the 12 tasks.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (`c0000005) (probably your McAfee).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have raid update its Driver.


*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

I have used my Office Outlook 2016 syncing with my Msn.com email for years, and as of 10/12/16, my outlook started to have issues. Nothing I did on the outlook synced up with the online emails nor anything that attacked that account (my iPad/iPhone) but whatever I did on those reflected.

For example, I deleted out my junk on Outlook, and it would not reflect that change, but I was still getting new emails into my Outlook.

I tried a couple of things, then removed my msn.com email, and restarted. When I tried to reconnect back to my email, (add email) it would always restart office outlook. Has done this every single day, though I can retrieve and do everything from my apple products or through the online Outlook (aka outlook live). But since I have tons of windows open, I don't need to try to keep track of my email when outlook did this. (the office products)

To make it more interesting, my Gmail accounts are still all linked and working through the office outlook. (it's sad when google is working better than their Microsoft's own email system!) I have restarted, repaired and done everything, even checked my privacy settings which are all set up correctly.

Has anyone else had these issues, and can help me?

I have a friend who just purchased a Windows 10 laptop.

It came with Office 365.

She has for many year been using Outlook Express in Windows XP.

She wants to move all of her outlook express emails (and sub folder of the Inbox) to the Outlook program on the new windows 10 computer.

Is this possible ??

I have succeed in getting her address book exported and imported but cannot find any info or instructions on how to move the emails and folders.

I do remember that some years back I did a transfer from outlook express XP email to a Windows 7 computer running outlook. But I seem to remember having to have some kind of special software to make this possible.

Can anyone tell me if I am wasting my time or is this transfer a possibility ?

She really does not want to give up all of her old emails.

Thanks in advance,

Dear Spice & I have Outlook.com accounts (both updated), with calendars shared with each other on Outlook.com (co-owner access level).

We can update each other's calendar directly on Outlook.com and in W10 Calendar. However, despite being configured as Exchange ActiveSync accounts, Outlook 2016 (and Outlook for Android) will only allow view-only access!

O16 is saying that "You do not have authorization to make changes to this folder."

This seems to require direct access to an Exchange server to change the folder configuration, for an EAS connection.

If Outlook.com is an Outlook 365 service running EAS, how can we tell Outlook 2016 to permit the full sharing access as authorized on Outlook Calendar.com?

This is probably affecting a lot of personal users who can't afford the infrastructure to run their own Exchange servers, just to share calendars.

(We are some of the refugees from Windows Live Mail, orphaned by the Outlook 365 conversion. That's why we're trying both O16 and Outlook for Android -- our eventual goal is to enable updating each other's calendars from our Android phones.)

G'day, I'm running Windows 7 Home premium on a Dell Inspiron laptop.

When I am trying to organise my music files and folders in my music Library I randomly get this error:

The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program.

But there can be nothing else open, no media player, (neither WMP or Media Monkey which I usually use), or any other window open at all. This is intermittent. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

For example; I just discovered that I have a Chris De Burgh folder with a couple albums in it and another folder titled Chris De Burgh - Greatest Hits. I decided to move the latter into the former and rename the latter to simply Greatest Hits. At first it wouldn't copy into the Chris de Burgh folder at all and the dreaded error came up. I clicked on another folder, went back and tried again and it worked. After putting the CDB-GH folder into the CDB one I tried to rename it, (without opening it). The action can't be completed blah blah blah. Retry doesn't work. This time I had to close windows explorer and open it again and browse to the folder and rename it.

Sometimes it works first go, sometimes you have to click elsewhere then come back to it, sometimes you have to close explorer, sometimes it simply refuses until I restart the pooter. I've tried deleting everything in the temp folder, (%temp%) but there are files in here which won't delete either coming up with the same message. I guarantee that the f... Read more

Hi, I just built a new computer, and it's running XP Pro 64-bit. It ran fine for the first week, but now I'm getting a problem everytime I open "My Computer". Instead of showing my drives, it does the search animation. After a minute or two, it will either find all the drives, or it will say something like "This operation could not be completed because (something) is being used by another program." and gives me two options: "Retry", or "Switch To". When I click "Switch To" it opens my "Start" menu.

A (possibly) related problem is when I open IE, I get shown a set-up menu, but when I click "Save Changes" the webpage hangs. I can bypass this and use the internet fine though. Also, my computer randomly hangs sometimes when playing games.

I'm pretty disappointed with all these errors on what was supposed to be my fresh computer... Any help is appreciated.

A computer suddenly stopped printing. When print job was sent to any printer, either networked or locally attached, the print spool service would stop. After several restarts, I copied the /Spool folder from a working computer. Now when attempting to print the following error occurs: Operation Could Not Be completed (error 0x000006be) The remote procedure call failed.

I've tried check disk, system file checker, and DSIM with no luck. I attempted a system restore but that failed in progress. My next move would be to reload the system. I'd like other ideas first, please?

A:Printing Operation Could not be Completed (error 0x000006be)

It seems the error may be due to corrupt print drivers. Delete and remove the printer/drivers and download the latest driver from the vendor's website.

Hello All. I have a client that just got upgraded to 2016 and is unable to use the search feature from within outlook. We have already tried recreating the profile and and rebuilding the ost file. Indexing, repaired outlook. I tried going to windows features
to disable and re-enable windows search but upon clicking on windows features in control panel an error comes up 
"The procedure entry point ucrtbase.terminate could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll."
Researching this error brought me to this article: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/entry-point-not-found-error-office2016.html
which we noticed that Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 runtime was not installed and we tried to install vc_redist.x64.exe  
But we then get another error stating: 
Setup Failed: 0x80240017 Unspecified error
Here are the Log files for that error.
