Outlook 2010 continually runs the just in time installation.

Problem: After installation of Office 2010 (we also had various previous version of office 2003, 2007 etc visio, project,Visual Studio 2010, Sharepoint Designer 2010)

Outlook would continually try to run a ‘Just in time install’

Error Message 1: Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office professional Plus 2010.
It would then ask to reboot – and on next launch of outlook – loop the same scenario.
Clicking No to the reboot message results in
Error Message 2: Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window.

  • try to repair the installation
  • try to reset the navpane with “outlook.exe /resetnavpane”
  • Open outlook with “outlook.exe /safe” and delete or disable all Add-Ons and try again
  • Files > Options > Add-Ins > Manage Com Add-ins > Go > deselect all items
  • or under the registry paths of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftOfficeOutlookAddins AND HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOfficeOutlookAddins
  • set all plugins LoadBehaviour(REG_DWORD) to 0
  • Enable each one individually to determine which add-on is preventing outlook opening.
  • add this registry key
reg add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftOffice14.0WordOptions /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
  • secedit /configure /cfg %windir%infdefltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose
  • From server manager install the File Services role – coupled with the Windows Search Service
The last option (install windows search service) was the only thing that fixed our server though there was a myriad of other articles where the first 1-4 resolutions listed above worked for everyone else.
