Windows cannot find ?
After installing .net Framework 3.5 and the .net Framework 3.5 SP1 update I can't start Office Outlook 2003 anymore.

The symptoms are:
1. Message that 'Business Contact Manager has encountered a problem and needs to close.

2. When sending an error report to Microsoft, the link 'Get more information about preventing the problem in the future' tells me:

Windows cannot find http: //
Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

The event viewer tells me that:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Microsoft Office 11
Event Category: None
Event ID: 5000
Date: 2008-09-25
Time: 08:37:23
User: N/A
Computer: KYBPC399
EventType bcm, P1 mapi, P2 typeinitializationexception, P3 1.0.2002.1, P4 11.0.8217, P5 nativemsproviderinit, P6 ctor, P7 9984089e, P8 NIL, P9 NIL, P10 NIL.

I have tried the following:
1. Start Outlook in safe mode with the same result
2. Uninstall .net Framework 3.5

Can anyone help?

Thank you in advance

Re: Windows cannot find '
Well the problem is clearly related to MS Office. You just need to insert your Office/Outlook Media cd in the DVD drive and and select the option to repair. Thats it.

Thanks for your reply.

The repair option didn't help.
But after first removing the Business Contact Manager, Outlook now works ok!
