Just installed Outlook 2003 on an old computer and need to find out what went wrong. Operating system is WinXP/SP3. Outlook works just fine on the administrator account, but as soon as I switch to the limited account and try to launch Outlook, it goes into install/configure mode and gets hung up there. Anyone ever seen this before, and if so what box did I forget to check or uncheck?

Outlook can do weird things like that. Try temporarily promoting your user account to an admin, run Outlook, then demote it back to user. Sometimes Outlook just needs to get something done as admin for the first run, then its fine. Do you have any add-ins installed like for Adobe Acrobat or some other program that gets into Outlook?

I just tried that...... works just fine when the user account is set to admin, but as soon as I reset it to a limited account it's back to the never-ending loop for Windows Installer. It made it a little further this time but now I'm also getting an error that C/documents&settings/"username"/applicationdata/microsoft/addins/outlvba.dll is not a valid Office add-in

Frustrating.......
