All I have to say is... it's driving me haywire!!!
I had to reinstall XP recently and now after all the updates and stuff, outlook express gives me some damn "MSOE.DLL could not be initialized" error!
I already tried and failed with:
Messenger Stop and disable in Services
Messenger folder rename
Outlook express reinstall
IE and Outlook uninstall.. then reinstall through Windows Update.
Deleted .dbx files
Checked .dbx files for "Read-Only"
I think I solved this problem last time with a .reg patch from some website, but I cannot find it! I didnt replace the msoe.dll file or anything, it was just some damn setting.
I feel it would be happier to slash myself over and over on my arm rather than get this error.
