Outlook not working - gdiplus.msp RRS feed

  • Question

  • It seemed like the profile was corrupt so I deleted it and it loaded in again from the Server (SBS 2003) The work station is XP SP3.

    Outlook wants to reinstall but stops and asks for a CD and says gdiplus.msp needs to be selected and loaded.  I have put in the file that i have found on the web but it needs a special one.  I can not seem to remove outlook or reinstall.  Even as admin.  always asks for the same thing.  Any ideas?
