Windows 7: Outlook 2016 Won't Start ...

Windows 7 Professional x64
Outlook 2016 Won't Start ...

... due to corruption of the "Email Address".pst file in "Outlook Files" folder.

I've tried to find a fix for this, but they all indicate a prerequisite of having a working main Outlook 2016 window. This started a few months ago after a click-to-run update session.

The error I get is a window pops up and refers to above .pst file being corrupt. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Have you tried opening Control Panel & selecting Mail (Microsoft Outlook). This opens a 3 option panel that may allow you to get into Outlooks Accounts & you might be able to try Repairing the .pst files.

Also run an Office Repair. In Control Panel select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office, Right click on it & select Change & that should provide a couple of options to try.
