Q: Outlook 2010 cannot find Outlook1.pst file--and won't open

Yesterday I upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2010.  Before the upgrade, I uninstalled Office 2003.  After the upgrade, and a succesful set up of an email account in Outlook, this error message came up: 

"Outlook Data File:  Outlook1.pst cannot be found.  Cannot start Microsoft Outlook.  Cannot open the Outlook window.  The set of folders cannot be found.  The file C;]users]myname\desktop\outlook1.pst cannot be found."

No pst file exists on my Desktop.  I then uninstalled Microsoft Office 2010, reinstalled, and the same error message.  Outlook cannot be used.

Help!!

 

Answer

A:

Thanks...didn't know how to change Outlook profile, so changed the pst path to "My Outlook Data File," and it seems to be working.

 

BTW:  How do you search for *pst ?  Sorry, am really a novice.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
