Typically in x:\program files\microsoft office\office

Thanks for taking the time to answer. This goes some way to help in that I know who has Outlook installed I need to know if it is being used. Also, all our Outlook users previously had Exchange and Schedule+ and the exe files are still present on their PCS. At the moment, I am thinking I will have to take a different route and email and application which interrogates the task list to id which apps are actually running.

Thank you again for taking the time to respond.

Gill:

For Outlook 98 you will need to look for a .pst file.

For Microsoft Exchange you will need to look for a .scd file.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for taking the time to answer. This goes some way to help in that I know who has Outlook installed but I believe our Exchange users also had pst files!! Need to confirm this though. Also, all our Outlook users previously had Exchange and Schedule+ and the exe and scd files are still present on their PCS (wrong I know but I wasn't involved at that stage). At the moment, I am thinking I will have to take a different route and email and application which interrogates the task list to id which apps are actually running.

Thank you again for taking the time to respond.

Yea, well looks like two of us helped you.
You rejected both of our answers, so we therefore get no points but you obviously read our answers anyway.
