    I am asking this question for a friend.
    He is unable to run his Outlook 2007 on VISTA, getting the following error messages:

    "Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook.
    Unable to open the Outlook window.
    "

    No error code. and a Google search did not provide much insite.
    Any suggestions here?

    If your friend can open Word 2007, click on the Office Button (upper left hand corner), click on "Word Options", click on "Resources" and then click on the "Diagnose" button opposite "run Microsoft Office Diagnostics".

    Edited to add: This Google search shows quite a few instances and possible solutions for this problem.

    Open "Windows Task Manager" (Ctrl-Alt-Delete) and see if Outlook is running in the "Processes" tab. If so, select it and then Select the "End Process" button at the bottom of the pane.

    Now you should be able to start up Outlook.
