Problem with Outlook 2010 after installing update to Word Perfect X5

Not open for further replies.


I installed an update to Word Perfect X5 and now when I try to open Outlook 2010, I get the error message "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook."

I tried uninstalling Word Perfect X5. I tried repairing Office 2010. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office 2010. None of those solved the problem.


Yes, I get the same message when I try to open it in safe mode. Thanks for the tip anyway.


A friend resolved the problem for me. He forced Outlook to "open as administrator." It opened okay that way, and after that, it opens normally.
