Iíve reinstalled a validated copy of OP 2007 on a reformatted PC and have had nothing but problems, specifically Outlook [slow as molasses] and the occasional ďthis copy is not genuineĒ popup even though Microsoft has verified my key code. I believe part of the problem may lie in that while I was repairing my current PC, I transferred all my Outlook backup PST files to another PC in the house with OP 2003, so I could continue my correspondence & keep all my work appointments, that I had in calendar.
When I imported my PST files back into OP 2007 thatís when some file corruption occurred and itís been hell since [92,000 duplicate calendar entries alone]. Iíve run the Office Diagnostics tool and manually removed some duplicate entries but Outlook is still slow. Iíve already uninstalled/installed the program as Microsoft recommended but Iím still facing the same problems. Just for giggles I went into my Administrator account and accessed Outlook and, voila!, it was back to its old self. A lot of that of course may be due that it doesnít have any of my e-mails, calendar and contact data.
My question is, now that Iíve deleted any calendar/contact duplicates and cleaned up the data base, can I install OP 2007 under my Administrator account and use it under my normal user account or will that eat another OP 2007 license [I have a 2 seat license but Iím using the other one on my laptop]?
The reason I ask this is because as soon a s I went to access Outlook under my normal account I got the ďthis copy is not genuineĒ popup after the 2nd reinstall.
