    installing outlook over demo version (Outlook 2003)

    Last night I tried to install Office Professional after the demo version had expired. Everything went fine, except Outlook would not open the .pst file created by the demo version. Is there anything I can do to recover the old .pst file?

    Re: installing outlook over demo version (Outlook

    I haven't installed either the demo or the real Office 2003. However, assuming you did not uninstall the demo or clear out your data files in between, your old data file (presumably outlook.pst) may still exist somewhere. Can you find it or any other relevant sounding PST files? If so, you could copy them into a convenient folder and point Outlook 2003 to them using File>Open>Outlook Data File. Does that work?
