    Windows XP Proret. msi

    Office keeps the installation files on the disc and this can be accessed through the Repair option from Add or Remove Programmes. By clicking on Change you will get some choice. Just select Reinstall or Repair and this should do the trick.

    I think that there was some confusion between using MS Outlook's files and Outlook Express files. Express doesn't read .pst, they're only good for MS Outlook. Outlook puts its stuff into .dbx which is located elsewhere (C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application...
