outlook 2010 won't open and no error message appears

Hi,

I'm unable to open outlook 2010 on a windows 7 64bit system. i don't get any error messages, and i'm able to open other office programs like excel and word. i open task manager and i look under process and i don't see outlook. so i try and open to see if outlook ever appears on the process and it shows for a second and disappears. i try to run a repair on the outlook but repair won't open as well. i'm a bit lost on this and not sure which direction to take. any advice would be very helpful.

This is possibly due to a faulty installation. This can usually be fixed by a re-installation.

Hope this helps,

Just a few random thoughts...

* Have you applied the appropriate updates to Outlook?


* If you right click the Outlook Icon > Run as Administrator...

Does Outlook now open / work as expected?

* If the problem doesn't appear when you're running in Safe Mode could it be a misbehaving add-in that's causing grief?


Safe Mode


Navigate to Add-ins and see if there's anything there you can disable.

{ If you have an iTunes add-in disable it. It's really only useful if you're synchronizing Outlook to your iPhone or iPod.}

Cannot open the Outlook window

If you get the error “Cannot open the Outlook window” when trying to start Outlook, you are probably running Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010. In this case the error usually indicates that your Navigation Pane settings holds a corruption.

Solution:
Start Outlook with the resetnavpane switch;

Windows XP
Start-> Run; outlook.exe /resetnavpane
Windows Vista and Windows 7
Start-> type; outlook.exe /resetnavpane


When typing, please note the space between outlook.exe and /resetnavpane.
If you encounter this issue more often, see this Quick Tip to find a more definitive solution.

The “Cannot open the Outlook window” error can be fixed quite easily.

* As advised by others if all else fails uninstall Outlook & reinstall again.

i tried opening as admin that did not work. it doesn't open in safe mode. i'm unable to open it at all. I just uninstalled office and reinstalled and that seems to have solved the problem.
