Windows 7: Outlook.PST

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
 
 
Outlook.PST

Without going into it, I have associated my Outlook Address Book with the wrong file to open. Could someone tell me what file it should be associated with. Go into this path C:\users\"your profile name"\appdata\local\microsoft\outlook\outlook.pst
Right click on outlook.pst and choose Open With. I believe at this screen it will tell you what file it is associated with. Thanks,

Hi bigmck, I just tried your instructions - I use Outlook 2007 - but no joy.

Perhaps it would be worth running Office Diagnostics from the Outlook Help menu?

Hi, Irene!

Sad to say, that is no longer a part of Office 2010.

Bigmck didn't specify his Outlook version but if he's running 2007, your suggestion is spot on, Irene.

You won't learn much from what I did. I worked on this all day and finally had to reinstall Outlook 2003. I though I had saved my Address Book, but it got lost in the mess. I have to create it over again.
