1. When confronted with a DLL file problem, a copy of some Microsoft media may already be owned from which the file can be extracted, [Definition and Explanation of a .DLL file (Q87934)].

2. To determine whether the file is a Microsoft issue, access the "DLL Help Database", enter the file name -- including extension in the space provided, and then press Enter (correct spelling and punctuation is recommended). If a list is rendered, simply determine from what media is shown and that currently owned and extract a copy, [How to Extract Original Compressed Windows Files (Q129605)].

3. If the file is unknown there and you know your system requires it, it's usually advantageous to simple uninstall and reinstall the applicable program for which the file belongs. Search the "Google_Group" Web site for resources or ascertain from the vendor who released the program whether there was any mention of having to furnish a particular ".DLL" file from some other site before their's work correctly.

Rev,

It would be nice to know more about your computer specifically the operating system and the version of Outlook that you are using. Following Cursorcowboy's lead here...the link below should help:

Error Message: The Set of Folders Could Not Be Opened

Hope this helps.
