Outlook 2003 error msg. in Win 7


I first used PCMover to bring over everything from XP Pro to my new Win7. After re-activation my Office 2003 works fine. But when I try to open Outlook I get an error message MAPI32.DLL is corrupt or the wrong version.

I reinstalled another copy of Outlook 2003 and it says the same. Trying to get rid of the Win 7 DLL I'm blocked by not having permission even though I am the Admin.

I found the solution: Go to your Program files(x86) then to common files/system/msmapi/1033/ and find msmapi32.dll rename it and for whatever reason this fixed it.
