I installed outlook 2010 and have been using it for a month or so. Today I can not open it because I keep getting this error OLMAPI32.dll I did try to repair the software with the disc without success. Is there a fix?

Did you upgrade from a lower version of Outlook to Outlook 2010?

Try the following steps:

· Close Outlook

· Locate OLMAPI32.DLL in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14 then rename it to OLMAPI32.DLL.old

· Repair Office 2010 using Add or remove programs in Control Panel. Check if it helps.




I receive the same error message however my problem is somewhat strange. My PC is shared between my wife and I. The OLMAPI32.DLL message appears only on my wife's ID. On my ID Outlook is OK. I did search for the file in the Program Files however this file is nowhere to be found.

We did upgrade from Office 2007 to Office 2010. I have to keep 2007 on my machine because I am a Groove user. Office 2010 Pro did not come with Groove.

Why does this error message appear only with one ID? Why can't I locate this file?
