Clock and other gif files missing from Outlook Today

Guest

In Outlook Today (using Outlook 2003) the clock in the upper left corner is a white square with a red X. The same thing is displayed in the styles box when I am in the "Customize Outlook Today" screen. From what I can determine the following file is needed but is not installed: :\Program%20Files\Microsoft%20Office\Office\1033\outlwvw.dll/thumbnail4.gif. I found this by using the properties function of that icon. The Clock is looking for C:\Program%20Files\Microsoft%20Office\Office\1033\outlwvw.dll/clock.gif. Both properties tabs show unknown protocol, Type Not available and the created and modified tabs are listed as unavailable. The odd thing here is that the 1033 directory is not in the office folder but in a folder called Office11, but the outlwvw.dll is not there either.

Hello Diane
I upgraded over Office 2000, but I did not have Outlook 2000 installed. I have tried detect and repair several times. What puzzles me is that the pointers reference a location that does not exist, i.e. they point to the file outlwvw.dll as located in ~Office/1033, but that directory does not exist. The folder 1033 is in a folder ~Office11. The only folder in Office is Data and the only file in that folder is olfport.da
Regards
Ted

Hi Diane
Just want to let you know I fixed this issue, in fact there was more to this than I first realized, Outlook Today was not saving my customized settings either.. While in the Outlook Today page, I brought up its property sheet, clicked on the “Home Page†button and clicked on “Restore Defaultsâ€. An error message appeared that the file could not be found, I clicked on “Restore Defaults†once again and this time, it created the needed files, in the right directory. Don’t ask me how I stumbled onto that solution, because I don’t know either, but it works
Regards
