Registry Repair for Microsoft Outlook Crash Issues
Given the number of releases of Microsoft Outlook (five since 1999) it has proved to be a generally stable and reliable application. This might be considered a surprise if you consider that the application handles various types of email accounts from POP and IMAP to Exchange and even MAPI.
In truth there are few persistent issues with Microsoft Outlook, and those that do occur are usually related to a mailbox. For instance the Microsoft Outlook 0x80040600 error occurs as a fault with a mailbox PST file, the storage for a particular email account on your PC.
However a Microsoft Outlook registry repair cannot be used to resolve such an error, only prevent it from immediately recurring. The 0x80040600 error can be resolved by running a database repair on the PST file, something you can do using scanpst.exe, found at:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\scanpst.exe
(Or C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\scanpst.exe in older versions of Outlook)
(Note that the 1033 is your Locale ID or LCID and will be different in non-English speaking countries.)
Using the scanpst.exe is a case of using the Browse tool to find the file you want and then clicking Scan to start the process. Once complete you can check the log, or proceed to use a registry repair tool. Note that scanpst.exe can be used to resolve a variety of email inbox (PST file) related errors.
