Outlook 2000 not running on XP Pro

by TPCosmo In reply to Outlook 2000 not running ...

Does the XP Pro client connect to the exchange server when logged in as a a user with admin. rights on the network.


I had the same problem with newly deployed XP boxes. I bet this is your fix: The xp box probably isnt using TCP/IP to communicate with the exchange server. Admins are allowed to talk to exchange via UDP, and thats why it works as an admin.
You can confirm this be checking the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RPC\Client Protocols.
See if you have keys installed. I bet you dont. That location should have:
Name Type Data
ncacn_http Reg_SZ rpcrt4.dll
ncacn_ip_tcp Reg_SZ rpcrt4.dll
ncacn_np Reg_SZ rpcrt4.dll
ncacn_ip_udp Reg_SZ rpcrt4.dll

Add those values, and I bet it works just fine.
