Uninstalling Outlook Express 2007.


D

DD

I need to install a 2000, 2002 or 2003 version of Outlook Express so
that my old organiser will synchronise. The computer originally had
Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition installed.This installs
Outlook Express along with the other Office programs and it cannot be
uninstalled by itself. When I uninstalled Office it left Outlook behind
and I cannot find any way to uninstall it. The old version of Outlook
will not install because it sees the newer version still installed. I
disabled Outlook using "Add or Remove Windows Components" but the old
version still would not install.
I have searched for a way to completely remove the 2007 version but
have been unsuccessful. Could someone point me towards instructions for
the uninstall procedure? I am using WinXP SP2.

Well, first, Outlook Express is not Outlook. Outlook is not a Windows component
and is part of Office. If you want to uninstall it, go to Add/Remove Programs.
If Microsoft Office Outlook is not on the list, then do an Add/Remove of
Office and unselect Outlook from there.

Outlook Express 2007
No such version of Outlook Express.
Outlook Express 2000
No such version of Outlook Express.
Outlook Express 2002
No such version of Outlook Express.
Outlook Express 2003
No such version of Outlook Express.

Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition
Unrelated to Outlook Express.
This suite does NOT install Outlook Express.

After uninstalling Office:
- Was it Outlook that was left behind?
- Or was it Outlook Express that was left behind?
Uninstalling Office does nothing regarding Outlook Express.

Well, thanks for all the information! I'll try to get things right this
time.
Looking at my organiser specification, it says I need Outlook
98,2000,2002,or 2003 to be able to synchronise. From what I read from
your replies it seems that I need not have uninstalled the Office 2007
Home and Student Edition, if I had known that neither Outlook Express
nor Outlook were installed by the program.
I am currently left with Outlook Express to uninstall so that I can
install one of the above versions, as I mentioned, it is not sufficient
to remove Outlook by the "Add or Remove Windows Components".
Grateful for any help...

Outlook Express being installed should *not* prevent you from installing
any version of Outlook.

What is happening when you try to install Outlook and what version are you
trying to install?

I have a 2002 version of Outlook which I have been trying to install
but again it would seem that it is Outlook EXPRESS that I should be
installing! Another misunderstanding due to me thinking the two programs
are just different versions with Outlook itself being an extension of
Outlook Express. It now boils down to the fact that I need to remove the
latest version of Outlook Express in order to replace it with the older
version. Sorry about the misunderstanding, I think I now know the
differences.
Thanks again for your help, I now need to locate a standalone copy of
Outlook Express!

There is no 'standalone' version of Outlook Express. It is part of the Operating
System. In fact, even including the occasional patches that have come out
for it, it is the same program today that shipped with XP when XP first came
out.

Heck, even the 'Windows Mail' renaming didn't substantially change the program.

If your third party program won't work on XP with OE, you may need an older
operating system.

Has the software ever run on XP? Does it say it is supported on XP? Does
the company who produced it exist anymore?

Thanks for the speedy reply, to answer your questions:

The program is compatible with XP Home or XP Professional, and has run
on XP. Both the Windows XP setups I have are up to date with all the MS
patches and service packs.
I have two organisers both are Sharp 'Wizards' [OZ590A]. The Sharp
internet site is not helpful.
When I try to install the Synchronisation program from the CD it tells
me that I "...can't install and use the synchronisation software
Microsoft Outlook Express is not available". Below that it has "Install
Microsoft Outlook" and "Setup Microsoft Outlook" I don't use either
Outlook or Outlook Express for E-mails or Newsgroups but OE is certainly
installed on both my machines, as would be expected. Since I don't use
OE at all, it is not set up for sending and receiving messages on
either computer. Could this be a problem or are there some other
settings that I should know about?

Thanks for your interest, it is much appreciated...

Beats me. If OE starts and is able to run, then you'd really need to ask
the people who write the software that isn't able to find it.

I would probably go to http://www.sharpusa.com/global/ContactUsProdSupp/1,1878,,00.html
and email them.
