    Missing wab.dll file

    I have a new computer with win 7 64 - I was hoping to just reinstall my old faithful Outlook 2000. The error messages I get are missing wab.dll file and also an invalid addin with outlvba in the name. Any advice. PS and I have just noticed that I can`t type a question mark here it comes out as a fancy E.

    The WAB.dll is an outlook file and to solve this problem follow the below suggestions:

    1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files Or Folders.
    2. Type Wab32.dll in the Named box, and then click Find Now.
    3. With the right mouse button, click Wab32.dll, and on the shortcut menu, click Rename. Type Wab32.old, and press ENTER.

    Thank you for the advice. I'm guessing you are not referring to win 7 in your response. I could certainly find the file but after a right click - rename is not an option. I tried to move it to my desktop but still have the same issue.

    Have you tried reinstalling outlook on your machine again because as it has been already discussed that Wab.dll missing with OL 2000 in Windows 7, therefore after a Outlook reinstallation everything will be fine.
