Microsoft Office 2003 not opening after a PC reboot

Hello all,

I installed Office 2003. Restarted my computer and clicked on the outlook icon, and an error message said; “Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. MAPI32.DLL is corrupt or the wrong version. This could have been caused by installing messaging software. Please reinstall Outlook.” Please see the screenshot.

I reinstalled it a few times and it said the same thing.

What’s wrong here?

Need your help.

Hi,

This problem occurs when you install then uninstall a program particularly Microsoft Outlook 2007 to a computer which has installed Microsoft Outlook 2003. There is an existing file remain in the folder on the computer after uninstalling MS Outlook 2003.

Try to follow these instructions. First, start the windows explorer then find and open the file C:Program FilesCommon FilesSystemMsMapi1033. After that, right-click the MsMapi32.dll file and click Rename. Rename the file by typing Msmapi32.old and press enter to rename. Finally, Start the Outlook 2003 .

I hope this will help.
