This issue may occur if you deploy Outlook 2003 with the
Microsoft Office 2003 Custom Installation Wizard and specify a
(.pst) file in the Windows Installer transform (MST file) by using
Default location for PST files path
option. The problem occurs
because you specify a file name instead of a folder path.
To resolve this issue for future installations of Office,
use the Custom Installation Wizard to edit the MST file. To do this,
- On the Change Office User Settings
(page 10 of 24), expand Microsoft Outlook
Miscellaneous, and then click PST Settings.
- In the right pane, double-click Default
for PST files, and then type the path that you want in the
Default location for PST files box.
For example, type
- Click OK, and then follow the steps to
complete the wizard. When you have corrected the MST file, deploy
using the correct MST file.
To resolve this issue for an
existing installation of Outlook
that is experiencing this problem, specify the .pst file by using
Mail icon in Control Panel.
