I was running WinMe with Office2k installed. I installed the XP HOME upgrade. The upgrade told me that I would need to reinstall to get Outlook to work correctly. when I did this, it would start to reinstall and then ask me to insert the WINXP PROFESSIONAL cd because of some protected files. I do not own the PROFESSIONAL version of XP. Only the HOME Upgrade. I read something on the windows support site that was kinda like this and it said to do a flat install in safe mode. THis however really makes no sense to me. I then installed office 97 back into the system. Now I can receive and read email through outlook express only but when i try and create a new email or respond, i get an error saying it cannot find the correct files. It basically seems corrupt or something. Anyone else experience a similar problem?
