I only have Microsoft Office Basic on my computer and needed to add Access and PowerPoint, so I got the old disks from my old computer that I haven't used in over a year and loaded onto this computer.
The Office Basic is 2003, the Office that I loaded was 2000 Professional. I didn't think to just add Access and PowerPoint, I just hit the Install button. Well I guess that messed up my Outlook because ever sense then I have gotten the 0x8007007E error message.
I am also getting a message when I try to open Outlook that says: c:/Documents and Settings\hostname\application data\microsoft\AddIns\outlvba.dll' is not a valid Office ad-in.
I have done some internet research and tried several things to fix it. No luck.
The first thing I did was to uninstall the Office Professional 2000. Don't know if that was the right thing to do or not.
I can receive e-mail by using my Outlook Express, which I hate. I need my Outlook to work again.
It will not send or receive.
I tried to do some fix stuff that you recommened to another person on the Forum. It did not work.
The last thing I did was what you said in Step 8: If all the above have failed, open c:\windows\windowsupdate.log in notepad, choose Edit > Select All from menu, hit the DEL key. Save the file. Visit Windows update again. AFter failure, ATTACH (do not copy and paste) the c:\windows\windowsupdate.log to your next past and someone will come along and help you.
I am going to ATTACH that, if I can figure out how.
SORRY, I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO ATTACH THE FILE. It was just a blank page anyway because you said to delete everything on it. I don't get it.
Help Please. Thank you.
