  1. Unable to run outlook, this is CRAZY!!!


    so... this issue is going on for over six months!

    the main problem and where it all started is that about 5 minutes after opening outlook, i get this error: another prosses is using the ost file and outlook is unable to access it.

    when restarting outlook I get the pst repair tool which of course finds errors in the file and repaires them, 5 minutes after that... issue reappears.


    Things I've done up untill now: with no change

    1. repair\upgrade windows.

    2. reinstall Office several versions including 2013, 2016, 2019 and office 365.

    3. remove outlook from search index.

    4. disable search index completely.

    5. reinstall windows several versions, I get errors with windows update even after freash install.

    6. repalce the SSD two different manufactures.

    7. run sfc /scannow, sfc finds errors but is unable to repair them.

    8. run dsim with local windows 10 iso as source running this without a local iso fails.

    9. contact HP this is a HP desktop, they redirect me to MS.


    when looking in the event viewer I get two errors, 1000 for SearchProtocolHost.exe & 2000 database corruption

    I am now with a fresh windows 10 Pro 20H2 install with ONLY office 2019 H&B installed and am at my withs end!

    I still get windows update errors and no fix in sight.

    This is a i7, 32GB, 250SSD PC so it didn't come cheep.


    I'm really hoping someone here can help me beacuse if not.... I'll have to "paint this PC blue and throw it in the ocean" as the saying goes.


    Thanks.

    Jonathan.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 and Outlook

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience as you are unable to access Outlook after installing Windows 10.

    Kindly let us know with the following to understand the issue and assist you better:

    • How have you installed Windows 10 (Upgraded/ Clean installation)?
    • Are you referring to Outlook Mail Client or Outlook.com website?
    • Were you able to see any error message/ error notification?

    Step 1: If you are referring to Outlook App, I suggest you to run Windows Store App troubleshooter and check.

    Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter, troubleshoots problems that may prevent Windows Store Apps from working correctly.

        • Type Troubleshooting in the search next to start on the desktop.
        • Click on View All on left side and select
          Windows Store Apps
          .
        • Select "Advance" and click on "Run as Administrator".
        • Click "Next" and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the troubleshooting process.


    Step 2: If you are referring to Outlook.com account, I suggest you to access in different web browser and check.

    Hope it helps. Kindly reply back to us with required information, we will be happy to help you.

    Unable to run outlook, this is CRAZY!!!

    How to install outlook express on windows xp with explorer 8?

    This is an awkward problem to solve and one I don't think is worth the time and effort.

    The OP would be better off either using a modern webmail service like gmail or outlook.com or using a modern email client like Windows Live Mail like FX-GMC suggested or Thunderbird from Mozilla. If nothing else, Outlook Distress was notorious for corrupting its data files and losing all your email in one easy step. Not worth it.
