I also tried these approaches, but the same error message appears. The only difference is that now, when I attempt to open outlook, I am walked through the account setup for an email account. However, once the setup is complete, my system appears to try and install outlook. Then the message appears "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open Outlook window."

I have tried to uninstall, but windows won't allow me to. Also, I tried running the full setup again, but windows won't allow this either.

To note, this is only occurring recently. I was able to use outlook for about 2 months. However, I had to re-install my copy of windows 7, due to issues with update configuration failures. Don't know if this makes a difference.

Thanks!

This worked perfectly for my Win 7 system. Do you have analogous directions and registry key for Win8 systems?

I've lost my Outlook account

HELP!!!!

I had the same problem with my Outlook : none of the word attachments would open (regardless of how I tried to open them). So I followed the suggestion from Capt.Jack Sparrow and went into Start > Regedit then deleted the Profiles key under the WindowsMessaging Subsystemkey (in the chain “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WindowsMessaging Subsystem”).

But now my whole Outlook account has disappeared and I can't get into my account. So I can't find any of my old messages or drafts etc.

Can soneone please help me to restore my Outlook account or allow me to access all my old messages.

Thanks.
