Explanation

This Error event indicates that Microsoft® Office Outlook® Web Access did not initialize because the forms registry folder referenced in the event description does not exist. The forms registry folder contains files that you must have to display an item or folder referenced in an Outlook Web Access HTTP request. If the required forms registry folders or files do not exist, users cannot access their mailbox using Outlook Web Access.

   
User Action

To resolve this error, replace the forms registry folder with the default folder on the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 DVD. Follow these steps:

  1. Locate the forms registry folder in the Setup\ServerRoles\ClientAccess\owa\forms folder on the Exchange 2007 DVD.

  2. Copy the contents of the forms folder to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\forms folder on the computer that is running the Client Access server role, where C:\ is the directory to which you installed Exchange 2007.

Explanation

This Error event indicates that a forms registry inherits from another forms registry and also defines a base experience. When a forms registry inherits from another one, it inherits the base experience of the forms registry from which it inherits and cannot define a base experience of its own. For example, if Registry A inherits from Registry B, it inherits the base experience from Registry B and cannot have its own base experience.

   
User Action

To resolve this error, do one or more of the following:

  • If you want to use the inherited base experience, open the forms registry that is set to inherit and remove its base experience.

  • If you want to keep the base experience, open the specified forms registry and remove the inheritance.

  • If you have difficulty resolving the issue, contact Microsoft Customer Support. For information about how to contact support, Microsoft Help and Support.

Moving my Outlook 2003 archive from one laptop to another

I’m attempting to move to a new laptop and I want to take my email archive with we.

I’ve got 3 related files klelky.pst, klelky.pab and klelky.ost which I have moved to a shared folder. The .ost file is about 500MB so I assume thats where all may mail is. (The other folders are 250kB each).

The bit of googling that I’ve done has got me as far as

Control Panel->Mail->Show Profiles->Data Files

but this only appears to let me select the .pst files and when I go into Outlook most of my archive is missing.

How do I get everything from the archive to be visible from the new machine?
