    The Outlook 97 support regarding this issue is not
    working for Outlook 2003. any other ideas to what must be
    changed to correct this error?

    "The extension configuration file ' .....\office11
    \addins\msspc.ecf' could not be installed. There is an
    error in the syntax ot format of the file."

    I could not see errors in the syntax, but not sure what
    to look for in any case!

    Hope you get an answer. I have unistalled/reinstalled it several times and
    get this 'migrating screen' rather than configuring screen.
    get the msspc error, plus a couple of other ecf errors. made sure the ecfs
    are there but still get the error.
    - uninstalled, and cleared registry of obvoius things, still the same error.

    I figured out the fix for msspc.ecf error

    I know this may sound like a lame fix, but it worked for me. I tried all of the fixs on the web and then I stumbled onto the OUTLOOK.EXE file in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11 and ran it from there. My outlook started to work again! ! ! I deleted all other shortcuts from my pc and used that one. Try it out and let me know if it works for you.
