I have upgraded my mother's computer and installed a 250 GB HD. I installed Windows into the first partition of 25 GB, and changed the default program file directory in the registry. The second partition is for Proggies, about 30 GB, as I recall. Two more partitions for pix and docs.
All went fine until I tried to set up Outlook Express and it won't start. I get a 0x8007007E,126 error code followed by can't start MSOE.DLL (I think that's the file, I'm going by memory here).
I have tried the instructions found here but no luck in changing the shortcuts.
I have also tried to reinstall OE/IE but I get the newer version detected : Process stopped.
OK, so I tried suppressing OE and IE from here but that didn't seem to faze XP at all.
Next I found a hint that by adding " /Q" (note the space) to the run command on the install.exe file you could skip the check for preinstall but that didn't work either.
XP is all up to date including SP2, but the disk I was installing from was pre SP2 so that came in updates.
Can anyone help me out ?
What information have I omitted that would make your helping me easier?
