I keep getting an error that says I need to run windows 7. What the...I already am. My OS is windows 7 64. Anyone have any suggestions. Spent over 12 hair pulling hours trying to get this resolved already. It did work before but I had some idiots (ms certified techs???)screw with my computer, said it was infected (stopzilla idiots) left outlook 2010 non functioning, so I tried to fix it myself but I've been striking out.


Hi there

Outlook runs FINE on XP / W2K3

Here it is on a W2K3 Virtual Machine machine

Incidentally always take a CLEAN IMAGE backup of your machine before installing / un installing stuff and at intermediate points when testing -- it only takes around 15 - 20 mins to image a reasonable W7 image and about the same to restore == saves loads of time in these situations.

Split your C drive up into OS / installed programs only and use the rest in other partition(s) for data / music / images etc etc.

What I'd have a go at doing is install outlook 2007 again - then install outlook 2010 -- it should ask you if you want to remove Outlook 2007.

BTW you will need the OUTLOOK 2010 32 bit version if you are upgrading from OUTLOOK 2007 -- in any case I'd use it anyway even on a 32 bit machine -- the whole office 2010 suite at 64 bit level isn't officially recommended for anything other than testing / developing yet.

Finally - don't use 3rd party programs to uninstall MS programs -- they might seem OK but if some weird registry changes are done by the MS program you could get screwed much later down the line. !!

Just use the control panel uninstall or the programs own uninstaller if there is one.
