Outlook Crash on Open

By chc57802 ·
In the last week, two clients on independent boxes have had the same problem, when opening Outlook (Office XP Pro), outlook generates an error and closes, will not open in Safe Mode.
AppName: outlook.exe AppVer: 10.0.4510.0 ModName: outllib.dll
ModVer: 10.0.4712.0 Offset: 0002d431 --->
Event Viewer shows Event I 1000, which when I go to Microsoft, shows "no information available". I am able to open the pst file over the network on another box so it's not corrupt, I have deleted and re-created the user profile on the box, have have unintalled and re-installed the MS Office XP - any suggestions?

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

This problem may occur if the Outlook 2000 user e-mail profile is damaged.
To resolve this problem, re-create the Outlook user e-mail profile.

NOTE: If you turned on the Outlook e-mail service option Internet Only, you must first reconfigure Outlook to use the Corporate or Workgroup option to implement a new user e-mail profile.

Part 1: Change to the "Corporate or Workgroup" Installation

Go to Control Panel - Mail
Change the settings for the account to NOT deliver to the .pst file
restart Outlook
Recreate the .pst in a location you will be able to find easily. If it is located on a network share and that is not connected when attempting to open Outlook it will crap out on ya. Can't find it's delivery location.
Wouldn't hurt to set up some logon scripts for the users to connect certain drives at logon so this will not happen in the future too.
