MORE INFORMATION
Known issues
Known issues that may occur during the installation of the update
If you have edited your holiday file, this update will not replace your holiday file even if the update is successfully installed. Therefore, to obtain the updated holiday file that is provided in update 910619, you must rename your existing holiday file before you install the update.
Known issues that may occur after the update is installed
? If you renamed your old holiday file before you installed update 910619, the changes that you made to your old holiday file will not be available in the new holiday file. You must modify the new file and add your custom changes to it so that the changes will appear in the new holiday file.
? If you install update 910619 and still have no holidays past December 2005, the holiday file on your computer was not updated even though the update was successfully installed. To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
1. Quit Outlook 2002.
2. Click Start, click Search, and then click All files and folders.
3. In the All or part of the file name box, type Outlook.hol.
4. In the Look in box, click Local Hard Drives.
5. Click Search.
6. Right-click the Outlook.hol file, click Rename, type Outlook.old, and then press ENTER.
7. Start Outlook 2002.
If you made custom changes to your old holiday file, but you did not rename the holiday file before you installed this update, you may be automatically reverted to the new holiday file and lose your custom changes if the following conditions are true:
? Your old holiday file becomes corrupted.
? You perform a detect-and-repair operation in Outlook 2002.
