Just downloaded the trial version of Outlook 2010, because Outlook 2007 decided to quit stop working. When trying to start Outlook 2010. I get the following error message " This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel."

I've tried the " Start Menu" and I've went to the program itself and double clicked the OUTLOOK.EXE file

Did you uninstall the non-working Outlook 2007 first? It is probable that a crashed installation may not have been correctly uninstalled, leading to problems when the replacement was added. Ensure Outlook 2007 is removed then repair or re-install 2010.

Which is the Office 2010 trial you have downloaded? Note that Office 2010 Home and student does not include Outlook.

If you have any other trial, in addition to the suggestion provided by Graham Mayor try the steps mentioned below.

Once you uninstall Outlook 2007 follow the steps mentioned below to enable Outlook 2010.

&middot; Click Start > Control Panel > Programs (Programs and Features)

&middot; Right click on Microsoft Office 2010 in the currently installed programs list, and then click Change.

&middot; Select 'Add or Remove Features' and then click Continue.

&middot; Click the drop down icon for Microsoft Office, and then click run all from My Computer.

&middot; Click Continue.

Thanks for all the advise, however none of it worked. I completely un-installed Outlook 2010 and went back to 2007.

I had this same issue, and I have fixed it. I found out from looking at the Event Viewer, I saw the following error:

Activation context generation failed for " C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\OUTLOOK.EXE.Manifest" . Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.CRT,processorArchitecture=" x86" ,publicKeyToken=" 1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b" ,type=" win32" ,version=" 9.0.30729.1" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

You can find this assembly module, which is distributed normally with Visual Studio 2008 SP1. If you do not have VS 2008 SP1 installed, then I am assuming that you will see this error. Also, if you are running a 64-bit OS (I am running Windows Vista, not sure if the same thing will occur with Windows 7) and trying to install Microsoft Office 2010 (a 32-bit version was only available for me at a discount - although I would prefer the 64-bit version).

Download the small package, install it, and try again. Here is the link for the VC90.CRT module you need: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=a5c84275-3b97-4ab7-a40d-3802b2af5fc2&displaylang=en
