Ever since getting a new PC with Windows 7 (64-bit) and installing my copy of Office 2003, I have been having problems with Outlook. The issue is that when I receive an HTML message from a sender distributing the email using the Bcc: line, the message comes in corrupted. This is a known issue and there is a hotfix for it (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/951982?p=1). Forum postings that I have seen from those installing the hotfix indicate it fixed the problem. Unfortunately, I cannot install it on Windows 7 - when I double click on the OUTLOOK.msp file as directed by the README, I get a popup that says "The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch". I'm guessing, but I wonder if the patch is looking in C:\Program Files when Office is actually installed in C:\Program Files (x86). Is there any way to get this patch installed or is there a version of the patch that works with Windows 7?
