    outlook express address book (olx v.6.0)

    I have two profiles set up on my xphome machine. On my daughter's profile I can open outlook express, but an error msg pops up telling me that "Outlook Express cannot open the address book. Please reinstall Outlook Express". Is it possible to reinstall olx and how is it done? On my profile olx works fine although I don't use it. I use Outlook XP. I have downloaded Internet Explorer 6.0 on my daughter's profile, hoping it would correct the problem, but it didn't. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You might just need to copy the existing file from wherever it is to some place that your daughter has permission to access. To see if permissions are the problem, try temporarily giving her power user or administrator privileges. If she can open the address book, then copy or move the file and see if you can train OE to find it in its new location.
