Outlook display messed - any ideas?
« on: April 07, 2006, 03:12:03 AM »
I've just run Outlook for the first time on my clean XP install.  Everything is up-to-date, but my screen is messed as in screenshot.  Before running, I installed MS Visual Studio 2005 Runtime Engine, Outlook 2003 PIA, and RemoteCalendars - the first two both are prerequisites for the third, which allows you to load iCal format into Outlook.  I wondered if it might be a case of WindowBlinds messing things up, but excluding Outlook from WindowBlinds makes no difference.  Any ideas? 

(PS. Screenshot taken with the sweet - but not nearly as powerful as ScreenshotCaptor! - ScreenJot (http://www.downloads...reen-with-screenjot/), then converted from BMP to PNG with the brilliant built-in image converter in DOpus.)

Now I'm very confused - completely removed the three add-ins I had installed, but Outlook still looks the same!  Then reinstalled Outlook and updated graphics drivers, but still exactly the same...

Have you tried unloading Windowblinds?  They seem to have been having some problems.  (And some users report legal copies broken with the same symptoms.)

Bingo!  It worked when I unloaded WindowBlinds (mine is a legit copy, btw)...  Reloaded WB, and it doesn't work again.  Any ideas for a workaround, or just wait for new version of WB?
