Papa Thanking Dan

Running Outlook 2007 on Vista 32.

Ditto the above comment: Outlook.exe /resetnavpane

solved the problem instantly, after spending a full day

rescuing the saved data files into an alternate email manager.

Saved and reopened and lo and behold: all present and accounted for.

Thanks a heap

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I have been playing around with the problem

for a week now. Ran repair, started in safe mode, uninstalled Outlook,

reinstalled OUtlook and nothing worked.

But this did. THANK YOU - you are a GOD!!!!

To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks!

That is the solution! Wow, there really needs to be a KB article on this.

This just happened to me with a clean install of Win7 w/ Outlook '07 - by

clean, I mean I built O/S two days ago... It was all running fine until I let

about 21 updates install for office service pack 2. Then, boom, can't open

outlook.

Thank you, Dan!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I was almost on the verge of

reinstalling the outlook program (all because of the error message "Cannot

start microsoft office outlook. Cannot open the outlook window.") because

none of the fixes were working (scanning and repairing the pst files,

creating a new profile, and trying to open from various points on the hard

drive) and running Outlook.exe/resetnavpane corrected it right then and

there. Thank you.

Are you sure your PST file wasn't oversized? If not ,i think you can

try Advanced Outlook Repair to solve the problem, by either converting

it into Outlook 2003 format ( http://www.datanumen.com/aor/problems/convert-2gb-pst.htm

), or splitting it into smaller pieces ( http://www.datanumen.com/aor/problems/split-2gb-pst.htm

)

http://www.datanumen.com/aor/ contains the detailed information about

Advanced Outlook Repair.

And you can also download a free demo version at http://www.datanumen.com/aor/aor.exe

Kudos to Dan Thomas. I, like many others it seems, ran into this same

problem "could not display Outlook window" and after various searches and

recommendations from others (to no avail) this one absolutely works. Thanks

again Dan.

Brilliant,

Thanks for the Outlook.exe /resetnavpane command. I have uninstalled Office

2007and re-installed etc. with no luck. Just ran this and instantly

everything was working again.

Thankyou....

I got Outlook to open after doing this, but it's as if it is a brand new

program. I lost 3 years of saved files. Is there a way to recover them?

Thanks,
