I was able to uninstall MS Office Outlook 2003 using the "change program feature" of the control panel "Remove Program" utility. Then I re-installed MS Outlook 2007. It did not work properly. However, on my third reinstal (after once again, and definitely removing Outlook 2003), I chose the repair feature. MS Outlook 2007 is now running correctly with no sign of Outlook 2003.
I really do not wish to uninstall my MS Office Professional Pro 2003 as all the features i normally use seem to be working fine in that package and I do not wish to go through another re-install with all the hassles that includes (including working from my old original disc, making multiple updates, and working with Microsoft to explain yet another installation when I am on record as having that package installed on the maxinimum number of personal computers at home). In other words, i am trying to stand pat on my current installation until necessity causes me to update to a more recent version.
Thanks for the prompt reply but I hope you will understand my desire not to pay for something that I managed to cure myself after hours of effort.
As I said in my previous reply, I do not wish to accept the answer I received. I did not use it and do not intend to use it. I cured my problem on my own. Please cancel my request.
Your reply suggested uninstalling my entire MS Office Professional 2003 suite using a link to tinyurl.com. I did not and do not wish to do that because of the difficulties i would encounter during re-installation. Instead, before I even received your response, I was finally able to uninstall MS Outlook only from within the MSOffice Profession 2003 suite itself (using the change utitlity that is built into that package). Then I reinstalled MS Outlook 2007 from my new original disk. After that installation, I continued to encounter some error messages in Outlook but they were not the same ones I found before when I initiated my request to you. I then used MS Outlook 2007's own built-in repair facility and was able to repair MS Outllook 2007 and make it work without error. . Since the solution I found on my own did not follow your recommendation, I feel that I should not have to pay for the advice you sent me but which I did not use.
Therefore, I request that you refund my deposit.
