Outlook 2003 and old exchange client




I've ran into hard problems while trying to get Outlook 2003 functional.
1) In XP ( both sp 1 and 2) we have Exchange Client 4.0.993.4 installed
2) We've created a installation program that first uninstalls the old
Exchange Client, then installs Office2003, sp1 and MUI - packages.
3) Installation goes fine
4) On a brand new installation everything works just fine, Outlook is
configured propely - so the installation packge is not corrupt
5) If user has used Exchange client earlier and user starts Outlook2003
first time, configuration rolls back and finally fails. Issue described on
Event Viewer:
"The description for Event ID ( 1004 ) in Source ( MsiInstaller ) could not
be found. It contains the following insertion string(s):
{90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}, OfficeUserData,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\UserData. "

How we can get rid of the old client totally before installing Office 2003?

Do you things work correctly when you manually install Office 2003 on that
computer logged in as that user?
