Jason, thank you for your time last night (Australia) I understood that my database problem had been repaired. There was a font problem you were investigating when I had to close our connection.


 


I was happy when you told me the database problem was fixed. I decided I could live with the font display problem.


 


When logging on this morning, Entourage fell over again. I ran Microsoft Disk Utility "Verify database integrity" and received the


following report:


 


====================== Starting Scan ==================== ERROR: Corruption detected on index [MLRC:1] ====================== Scan Ended ====================


 


Does this error message mean anything to you?


 


I would be happy to reinstall Entourage, but as this came pre-installed on the Mac, I do not know where to get a copy. The database error prevents me from getting the software update.


 


What are your suggestions re database corruption or re-install?


 


The corruption is not fixable.

You will have to reinstall Entourage.

You can download Entourage at the following page: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24161

I have given this a try and seem to be going around in circles going nowhere. The installer does not recognize that I have an existing compatible version of Entourage. Have again attempted installation from the command line:


 


john-and-bevs-imac-2:~ johnbev$ sudo installer -pkg /Volumes/Entourage\ 2008,\ Web\ Services\ Edition/Entourage\ 2008,\ Web\ Services\ Edition.mpkg -target /
installer: Cannot install on volume / because it is disabled.
installer: A version of the software required to install this update was not found on this volume.


To learn how to fix this issue, see "I can't install Office 2008 for Mac updates" at http://www.microsoft.com/mac/help.mspx.



Do you have any other suggestions?



Sorry about that.

Is there anyway for you to contact the company you purchased this Mac from and request a copy of the Office 2008 installation CDs?
