Outlook 2000 failure in Win 7 64Bit
by simsk - 10/3/09 3:33 PM
I've installed my version of MS Office(2000 Premium) on Windows 7, and everything seems to work fine, except outlook. I get two different errors:
1)An error occurred while attempting to open the Windows Address Book. Unable to find the WAB.DLL.
2)Unable to update public free/busy data. An error occurred while attempting to open the Windows Address Book. Unable to find the WAB.DLL
I've been searching the web, with no concrete results for 7. I've found references for everything from Win 95 up through Vista, but, not 7.
As I understand it, these are included in Outlook express, which, of course isn't available in 7. Each reference it to 'reinstall OE'. 7 doesn't give you that option, as its not a native application to 7.
One reference suggested copying WAB.DLL as well as WAB32.DLL to the sytem32 directory. Didn't work.
Would anyone have any idea if I'm going to be able to get Outlook 2000 to function in Win 7, and if so, HOW?
Thanks for any ideas you guys might have.
