could not install the custom actions, outlook 2007

  Eddd 20:08 07 May 2010

Every time I use outlook on my win 7 pc for the last few weeks I have had the error 'could not install the custom actions'

I am using office enterprise (2007 edition)
and have all the latest updates for my entire system, software and hardware, I have followed the advice posted on the net to remove the forms folder, and the FRMCACHE.dat file, but this doesn't alter anything, even after rebooting.I have tried running the diagnostic tool in office.
I have tried repairing the installation, no luck there. I have tried reinstalling the whole office suite after removing all the office folders from the programs list and rebooting to be sure they were gone before trying to install afresh, but that just seemed to put the corrupt file back in with the new installation. I even tried copying the FRMCACHE.dat file from a working installation of the office suite from another computer, but this didn't make any difference either.
I am now starting to pull my hair out in frustration. Please someone help.

The first post on here may solve your problem - but it's worth reading through it in case the problem returns later

No have tried that, and what I thought was a clean install, This doesn't happen on my other p.c which has an almost identical set up. And as far as I know there wasn't any forms set up.

Did you also delete the frmcache.dat file?

Sorry - ignore that last post - I see you have already done that.

I have just opened outlookand managed to open a message without that annoying message popping up.
I'm not sure what stopped it but, I tried deleting several things including:
and the usual forms folders and frmcahce.
I then went into control panel, programs and hihlighted office and clicked change at the top of the list.
I then chose not available for a couple of the outlook and office options and also deleted Live sign-in manager.
After a reboot and opening outlook I now have a clean start with no pop-up saying 'could not install the custom actions'
Again I don't know what bit worked but it worked.
