OUTLOOK Can't Find Address Book, WIN 8.1

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 laptop that came loaded with Win 8.0 which I installed Outlook from Office 2000 disk. I was able to use Outlook just fine until I upgraded to WIN 8.1. Now Outlook cannot find the Windows Address Book and I can only receive emails (Can't send, reply or forward emails). When I try, I get the following message "An error occured while attempting to open the Windows Address Book. Unable to find WAB DLL.".

I've tried deleting and re-installing Office/Outlook but still getting same message. I have imported the wab address file into Windows but that does not help.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

PS: Solved the problem. Open Outlook as a new install and choose Corporate instead of Internet Only type.

This problem occurs in Outlook when Wab32.dll file is missing or damaged. To resolve this issue you need to reinstall Outlook for updating Windows Address Book file. Moreover for more info, you can visit @this_link: https://support.micr...en-us/kb/196210
