I can no longer select a template from CPA. I get an exception error. When I

try to uninstall CPA I get a message "The patch package could not be opened"

This came after my User account on XP became corrupted and I created a new

User. Cannot uninstall from either user.

I'm running XP SP2 - no viruses or spyware on my system. 2.5 Gig memory.

Please help. I miss my tri-fold view that I've come to depend on to get

through the day.

did you try office diagnostics? Can you reinstall office?

In Outlook try:

- Open the TOOLS menu

- Select the TRUST CENTER

- Select ADD-INS

- Select MANAGE

- Select COM Add-ins, Go, tic the box.

If it isn't listed you can "Add" and navigate to and select

the "cpaoaddin.dll" in

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12

Do you have Exchange Administrator installed on your

machine?

Thanks for your response. Diagnostics ran without any error (all 5 tests).

What can I try next without reinstalling Office (I can't find my original CD

at the moment and also that seems like a big deal. Plus the error seems to be

with CPA and not Office)?

What do you think about installing CPA again without uninstalling the

corrupt program?

Thanks for replying. I followed your suggestions and found the dll as already

present. Exchange Administrator is not installed. This is a standalone PC.

Is there a way to remove the dll? Maybe that will allow the rest of the CPA

program to be uninstalled?

Was it "ticked" to be on?

There were no ticks because there were no checkboxes for the add-ins. All

that I see is the name of the add-in. At the bottom of the window there is

one checkbox with the caption "Apply macro security settings to installed

add-ins

So as far as I can tell the add-ins are on. I tried double-clicking on the

line item but nothing happens.

What should I try next?

you have to click the Com addin's Go button to see if its checked, although

it should be if its listed in the active section.

Reinstalling CPA may help. Reinstalling office probably won't - office

diagnostics is a shorter version of a reinstall and fixes almost everything.

Diane,

Thanks for your response. Clicking Go at the bottom, that wasn't too

intuitive or standard. It was clicked.

Thanks again. I'll try the CPA reinstall.
