When I try to open OE6 in Windows XP(home) I get the message '...encountered a problem and has to close'. I have tried restoring to previous point, run SFC, re-installed SP1 and downloaded the latest update. The report info. includes: App. Name msimn.exe, Mod. Vers. 6.0.2800.1106, App. Vers. 6.0.2800.1106, Mod. Name. directdb.dll Can anyone help please? BillD
Thanks Forum Editor, no I haven't tried that. However, I did get a solution from the Microsoft Newsgroup. Apparently problems involving directdb.dll and msoe.dll indicate corruption in the message store. The solution which worked for me was to remove folders.dbx to a new file. Then OE would open but you lose your file heirarchy. Folders.dbx appears to regenerate itself because when I looked again there was a copy in the message store. One then has a bit of a fag reinstating the file system (good discipline anyway) - the fact that I am able to send this because I received your email is proof that it worked for me! BillD
