Cannot Run Scanpst.exe error
MS Outlook sometimes encounters problems with the PST file. The PST file stores all of the e-mails and personal information Outlook needs to run properly. When this occurs, the utility Scanpst.exe needs to be run in order to repair the damaged PST file. Sometimes the Scanpst.exe utility cannot be run because one of its critical files is missing or damaged. When this happens, the user will receive an error message when attempting to start the Scanpst.exe utility stating:
Windows cannot find scnpst32.dll
