Microsoft Office Diagnostics

Yesterday I managed to get Outlook "12" running. I had some trouble in getting it installed earlier. The new version is very unstable on my machine. It repeatedly crashed on closing. After a couple of crashes a new application showed up: Microsoft Office Diagnostics. It offered to check my machine for possible problems. This is what is looked like:

It reported two conflicting versions of Outlook. That was a bit strange, because I had only one other Outlook version installed. Outlook 2003 was no longer able to download mail. Also ActiveSync was no longer able to synchronize calendar items and contacts with my PocketPC. So Outlook "12" had to go.

After deinstalling Outlook "12", Outlook 2003 auto-repaired on start up and is working fine again. Phew...
