My PC crashed I went through full recovery but now when I try to open

Microsoft outlook it says to execute the scanpst.exe but it's not where it

says it should be and doing a scan of my systems using "scanpst" comes up

empty..

Suggestions??

First try clicking Start>All Programs>Microsoft Office>Microsoft Office

Tools>Inbox Repair Tool or Start>All Programs>Microsoft Office Tools>Inbox

Repair Tool. If neither are there, open Windows Explorer and, in the Address

field, enter

%CommonProgramFiles%\system\MSMAPI\1033

for English language Outlook 2003 or earlier (the "1033" will be different for

languages other than English) or

"%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office12"

for Outlook 2007. Click Go. SCANPST.EXE (aka the Inbox Repair Tool) will be

there.

Brian

Thanks for your help.

The "Inbox Repair Tool" was not there.

I also don't appear to have Windows Explorer

When I left click the start button I can open explorer and find my way down

to

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033 but the only file in

there is a DLL file - MSMAPI32.dll

BTW I'm running vista and outlook 2007.

Other thoughts?

Re: Outlook fails - error says execute scanpst.exe but can't find

If you can open Explore, then you have Windows Explorer. Was there a file

called scanpst.exe?

Have you enabled viewing hidden files and folders?

In Windows Explorer, click on Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab

and click on the buttons Show Hidden Files and Folders and also uncheck the

box Hide file extensions for known file types. Then search again.

Sure you do. Open "Computer". That's Windows Explorer.

Please read what I said again:

Look in the same folder where the OUTLOOK.EXE image resides.

What version of Outlook are you using? What operating system are you

using?
