    Ever Want to Reinstall JUST Outlook Express 6??

    Fellow Loungers ~

    This may be Starpost worthy....came across a very cool magic fix...<IMG SRC=http://www.krymow.com/images/magician.gif>...a rare and hot reg tip for a common-sought issue <small>(Thanks, Abraxas!)</small>.

    Go to:<UL><LI>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftActive SetupInstalled Components{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}<LI>Change the value of the REG_DWORD 'IsInstalled' to 0<LI>Run IE6 SP1 setup - it will install only OE6![/list]To be on the safe side, it is recommended to check that the REG_DWORD, 'IsInstalled' for IE is set to 1 here:<UL><LI>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftActive SetupInstalled Components{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}[/list]This worked a a charm in a corporate network environment where IE & VPN settings must not be fouled as well as a home and non-networked environment in both W2K & XP. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Hi Bruce,

    How are 'ya? <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29>

    Looks like a GOOD tip to hang on to. I didn't try it but sounds like a "keeper" <img src=/S/trophy.gif border=0 alt=trophy width=15 height=15>

    Today it is called golf!

    Hi, Bob ~

    Doin' great!

    Yes, it is a keeper - a bud turned me on to it and we've put it in a few other forums as there seems to be nothing otherwise readliy published to let one know that one can actually install just OE. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Just the ticket for me, but being a novice--- change the value: 0x00000001 (1) to read: 0x00000000 (1) ??
    The "(1)" confuses me.
    Tnx Andy

    Hi, Andy ~

    I can see what you mean by that, but for the purposes herein, I would disregard the '(1)'. The value being changed is the hexadecimal is the figure '0x00000001'.

    When you are in the registry editor and right-click 'IsInstalled' in the right-hand pane of the window, an 'Edit DWORD Value' box will appear and the 'Value data:' field is where you will make the edition.

    I'd be wary of such a trick, as it may byte one in the back rank, to use polite chess terminology, when it comes time to download updates to IE/OE.

    Hi, Howard ~

    Not a 'trick', just a reg setting as are many others. M$ wants you to have them both on your little 'puter, 'sall.

    I am happy to report that updates to both IE and/or OE have done nothing to jeopardize this (nor should it) that I have personally performed on five different computers in three different environments. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Located a genuine M$KB article that includes the above fix for either IE or OE only:

    Bruce,

    You didn't run across the same trick for Outlook 2000, did you?

    Hi, Harold ~

    OL2000 is not integrated into the IE browser as is OE. In your case, simply use your Office Suite CD and utilize the custom install feature and follow the directions from there.

    Hi Bruce,

    Thanks but I was just curious. I don't need it right now but I'll try to keep it in my memory bank.
