"Cannot start MS Office Outlook."

The rest of the message reads:
"Cannot open the Outlook window.  The set of folders cannot be opened.
Errors have been detected in the file.
C:\Users\Leigh\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst.  Quit Outlook and all mail-enab led applications, and then use the Inbox repair tool (Scanpst.exe)
to diagnose and repair errors in the file.  For more information about the Inbox repair tool, see Help." 
I cannot access this program.
It opens but closes right away and I get the above described error message.  How do you run Scanpst.exe if you cannot get into Outlook? Please advise.

Keys to the Problem "Cannot start MS Office Outlook."


For your version of Outlook, SCANPST.EXE shoud be located in %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office12, which is hidden by default.  Double-click it to run it.  Then enter the exact path that you posted as showing in the error message when you are prompted.
