Outlook re-install problem

  panhandle 15:24 04 Jan 2006

After a complete windows XP & Office 2002 re-install on laptop, Outlook will not allow me to import .wab & .pst files, nor set-ip/add e.mail accounts.
Maybe I do it wrong.

From File/Import Export I get "The operation failed"
From Tools/eMail accounts I get "The operation failed due to a registry or installation problem. Please re-install"

I have tried both repair & re-install of Office to no avail.

Any ideas please?

Have you the latest updates to, Windows, Office and Outlook?

I would uninstall Office again, reboot then run a registry cleaner such as Regscrub

Then reboot and reinstall Office again
