Invalid Add-in error message

When I open Outlook 2003, I keep getting the following error message: 
C:\Documents and Settings\Amanda\Application 
Data\Microsoft\AddIns\outlvba.dll is not a valid Office Add-in.  Then I am 
booted from Outlook. How can I fix this?

Try renaming outlvba.dll to outlvba.bak.  Go to the add/remove applet in the 
control panel and perform a detect and repair on Office/Outlook 2003.

/neo

ps - outlvba.dll normally exists at \Program Files\Microsoft 
Office\OFFICE11\ADDINS.  I've never seen it under a user profile.

The add-in error for OUTLVDA.DLL appears to relatively common.  There are 
many posts on the WEB but NO official fix or sugeestions how to troubleshoot 
the error - except this one from NEO, which I will try.

Microsoft needs to deal with this error and give us the troubleshooting tool 
to resolve this Office 2003 add-in issue.  It appears inconsistently and 
randomly reappears after the dll has been re-enabled.  

I am using an Office 2003 Pro upgrade from Office 97 Pro.  OUTLVBA.DLL is 
version 11.0.5516.0.  

My Addins folder contains:

I am back again.  I went to the add/remove applet in the control panel to 
perform a detect and repair on Outlook 2003.  There is only a "detect and 
Repairs Errors in my Office Installation" nothing particular to Outlook.  I 
also needed to go into Task Manager to stop background Office applications 
that were running before running the Office repair function.
Windows reports the repair was successful.  The Repair replaced the same 
outlvba.dill version/date/size file into the ADDIN folder.  Nothing is 
presently disabled in Outlook 2003.  

We'll see if this fixed it.

Well, the detect/repair idea did not fix the problem. After just a few days, 
I got the popup that there was an error and the add-in would be disabled when 
Outlook opened.
Suggestions?

I took a look at the support page 235009. I did not have an Outlook Sync 
option to clear.  So no help for me.

I tried all the posted solutions.  There is nothing in the Com addins box to 
disable. 

Yesterday, I ran the Office removal tool several times (it would constantly 
freeze up - "not responding") and ran the detect and repair options in Office 
2003 and in OneNote 2003.  I no longer have a OLSpacop toolbar or a OneNote 
toolbar in Outllok 2003 but more importantly, I am no longer getting the 
error messages and the disabled dll.  

..Iit most be more M$ FM, Microsoft F**king Magic.

I have verified that if I install the OLSpamCop addin, I get the dll error.  
If I uninstall the add-in, the error messages stop.  I am unable to determine 
the underlying cause of the error messages and the disabled dll.

Bug! Error Bars Inherited from Another Workbook
Got an odd one here. I have suite of macros that create a workbook with a number of sheets, containing charts from a number of separate workbooks. The charts show a number of series, including a mean with custom error bars, taken directly from two columns in the source data, spec for the + bars ='C:\Temp\[Some_File_Or_Other.xls]Data_Sheet'!$CK$2:$CK$366, and the following column for the - bars. I run the macro once, and save the resultant chart-filled workbook as DirectoryA/FileA.xls. I change the data in the source workbooks, rerun the macro and save the results as DirectoryB/FileB...

Exch 2003 - Stopped MTA Stacks Service
We've got two Exchange 2003 servers in native mode. I had read that you don't need the MTA Stacks service running in this configuration, so I stopped the service on both boxes yesterday. I came in this morning and there were hundreds of emails queued up on both servers queues to each other. When I highlighted the queue on one of the servers it said the other server was unreachable. I then found that we had no DNS entries for these servers in our AD DNS. I added them, and also added MX records and mail started flowing between them again. Does the MTA Stacks service provide some kind of ...

unusual Type Mismatch error
Hello A piece of code that has been working OK for some time has suddenly fallen over with a Type Mismatch error. The line in question is : Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strTableName, dbOpenDynaset) I resolved the issue by removing the "Dim rs as Recordset" declaration and everything has now gone back to normal, but I would be grateful if anyone could throw any light on why this may have happened?

How does Outlook 2003 handle the MIME type message/rfc822?
Hello, could anyone tell me excactly how Microsoft Outlook 2003 handles the MIME mediatype "message/rfc822"? The reason I am asking is because I am currently working on a gateway to convert mail from a custom format to the rfc2822/rfc2045-2049 specification(s). In this custom format, it is entirely possible for a mail message to have whole mail messages attached. It seemed like this would be easily solved by using the message/rfc822-type to include the entire mail, but this turned out to be a problem if the attatched mail was itself a MIME multipart-message. In that case, Outlook si...
