"Unable to update public free/busy data" error message when Outlook 2000 update your published free/busy information
My stable Outlook 2000 yesterday developed this problem yesterday whilst I was away and with no system changes (I'm running Vista). I've found the Microsoft Support advice at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816942 and downloaded the recommended hotfix
but when I've then attempted to install it I get another error message: that the upgrade patch can't be installed because the Outlook program may not be installed (it is) or be another version (it's O2000, which is what the patch is for).
So any ideas as to what I should do. Would it do any good just to uninstall/reinstall the program?
