I have a dual boot system running XP Pro and 98SE - both systems have MS Office 2000 installed. Under 98SE I use Outlook EXpress, backing it up using Express Assist 2000, which I have now installed on the XP systyem prior to using XP for all my internet work. I now have a probelm in that thw Outlook Express icon on my XP system says its loading Outlook Express and then loads MS Outlook instead. I have looked at Add or remove programs> Add/remove Windows componenets> but the Windows Components Wizards shows Outlook Express already installed but with a size 0.00Mb.

Do you know how I can get Outlook Express working in XP Pro, please?

Have you tied making OE the default email handler?

Or try running in compatibility mode.

Sorry, how do I do this? The program is not listed in the Compatibility wizard, and, so far as I can see, its not even installed.
