The operation failed due to a registry or installation problem after Windows 8 upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • After upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8 pro .. my Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 will no longer access any of my email accounts.  It gives the error "The operation failed due to a registry or installation problem" when I try to go into accounts...

    I have tried running Outlook under an administrator's account...  no luck

    In other places in Windows 8.. It says that Pop is not supported and to use another email package... (Some are suggesting Thunderbird???

    any help here????

  • Funny... I tried the diagnostic feature in Word (to look at the Office suite)... It found a problem... and O boy .. the pop feature works again...

    But... when I went to a link out of outlook to explorer... Windows 8 .. hung... and I needed to reset the Virtualbox system...
