Following the installation of an Outlook add-in I received the message “Cannot start Microsoft Outlook” when I attempted to open Outlook.
I tried to open Outlook in Safe Mode by holding down CTRL when clicking the Outlook icon. However, this didn’t solve the problem. Next I opened Control Panel and received the message “Your system needs more memory or system resources”. This didn’t make sense as I had GBs of free RAM.
In order to solve the problem, I opened registry editor and renamed
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem
to Windows Messaging Subsystem – BAK. I was then able to open Outlook and create a new profile.
