Outlook 2007 - Cannot find the file or Office12 SCANPST

April 2018

I was getting an error message when opening Outlook.

My problem was: Outlook no longer opens. Can not find the file or Office12 SCANPST.

Setup: Outlook 2007 on Vista.

  • Control Panel -> Classic View -> Folder Options.
  • In "folder option" open tab "View" then check "show hidden files and folders".
  • Restart the computer.

  • Start -> Computer -> C drive -> user -> name -> Appdata -> local.
  • Open the folder "Local" -> right click -> property.

Uncheck "read only" -> apply -> OK. (the analysis starts. Accept the agreement administrator who might be asked).

  • Start -> Computer -> C drive -> Programs -> Microsoft Office -> office12.
  • Open "office12" there is SCANPST. Click SCANPST, a dialog box appears.
  • Click on "Browse" and then ... computer -> C drive-> user-> name-> appdata-> local-> mocrosoft-> Outlook.
  • 2 In Outlook folders appear. Archive and Outlook. Click on Outlook and then start.

At the end of the search to "repair".
