I have written a step by step blog post on how to resolve this problem in Windows 7 after upgrading to Outlook 2010 from Outlook 2007. You can read it here:
I am a deep user of excel [and moderate word]. When 2007 was released I vomitted for days and quickly determined that the likely psychological damage would be much more than prosac could handle. Hence i have resisted upgrading and persevered with 2003 as long as i could. In essence MS have completely stuffed a sound working system and buried all my favourite commands and activities under a kindergarten pile of dumb-as-paint graphical interface elements that are meaningless. As has always been my motto MS should not try to fix a non-existent problem - but the usual capitalist greed clearly over-ruled and here we are with comtemptable rubbish that completely fails to meet the needs of users. Any attempts to continue to work with excel 2007 at the level of work that i do are utterly futile.
My first question is who is paying the $120/hr for 12 months to start all over again with a system that is designed for idiots but simply cannot be used by those with abilities that were intensely developed over many years?
And now for the real problem ... when firing outlook 2007 I continue to get this incompatible warning and cannot resolve. Against all the odds I have both 2003 and 2007 installed. In CP the buttons to add/remove software are not live, so i cannot remove 2003 even if i finally decide that it must be done.

I do get the standard message, then a reinstall completes successfully, but 2007 outlook continues to refuse a boot.
Any clues out there to assist?
Oh well ... that went down like a lead balloon ... the truth hurts I guess, and people develop loyalties over time. Such is life.
That said, another morning of extreme pain and sheer frustration wasted trying to get Excel to do anything productive. 35 minutes to find how to add a chart title, then 0.637 seconds to link to a cell reference so that it's dynamic. So far another 48 minutes trying to get x-axis labels to be text appearing in column headings. What an absolute abortion of a piece of software [actually it should be called hardware since there is nothing soft about it at all] ... maybe Lotus will make a comback :)
I am having the same problem. I bought a new laptop and I'm running Windows 7 and installed MS 2007 and Outlook won't install correctly. OLMAPI32.dll is missing. So I uninstalled to reinstall and had the same problem.
It is very fustrating.
