Installing outlook 98

By djmarvin ·
I am presently (unsuccessfully), trying to install Outlook on a workstation that is running W2k. I am getting an error message that reads: Set up could not verify the information needed for installation.

Please make sure that your system clock reflects the current time, and then run setup again.

The time is correct and has been since the workstation has been removed from the box.

Thanks for the help!

Solution to your problem comes right from Microsoft. You will have to edit your registry file.

To work around this issue, change the "Local Intranet Zone" security zone of Internet Explorer 5 or Internet Explorer 4.0 SP2 so that unsigned files can be executed. Here is the registry key you can import to make this change programmatically:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1\1004
Set this RegDWord to 0 (Zero).

Here is the explanation for the registry key value:

dword:00000000 : Enabling Unsigned Files download
dword:00000003 : Disabling Unsigned Files download
dword:00000001 : Prompting for Unsigned Files download

You can also rename Wintrust.dll, install Outlook 98 using the ODK, and rename the Wintrust.dll back.
