  • That Mr. Fixit did not help -- still can not open links in (Office 2003) Word and outlook (not Express).

  • This fix did not work for Outlook Express v6.

  • my computer outlook and word are not runing

  • This fix it tool did not work.  I also tried this:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type the following command in the Run dialog box, and then click OK:

    regsvr32 urlmon.dll

    2. Repeat step 1 for each of the following commands:

    regsvr32 mshtml.dll

    regsvr32 shdocvw.dll

    regsvr32 browseui.dll

    regsvr32 msjava.dll

    When I type in “regsvr32 urlmon.dll” it get a successful notification.  When I type in the next “regsvr32 mshtml.dll”, I get a message that states, “The module “mshtml.dll” was loaded but the entry point DllServer was not found.  Make sure the “mshtml.dll” is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.”

    The same happens when I tried “shdocvw.dll” and “browseui.dll”.  When I typed in the “msjava.dll” it succeeded.

    I am running IE8, MSOutlook 2007 SP2

  • I get the same as Kara so any help very welcome.

  • FixIt did nothing....

    phorvick@loretel.net

  • I have the same problem as Kara, June 9,2009, and the others.  Where is the answer to solve this problem?

  • It didn't work for me, either!

    Why bother to have the feature???

  • The fix didn't work for me either.  I tried it both ways with no luck.  I'm using Outlook Express 6.  Any suggestions?

  • I get the same error msg for the same command as Kara: mshtml.  Hyperlink non-functioning began upon finally being able to successfully install ie8.  I was able to get Outlook links to function but not WORD.

  • http://www.insideoe.com/problems/bugs.htm (Scroll to 'Hyperlinks in messages stop working'. This repaired Outlook.)

    http://www.scscc.com/bkk/Hyperlinks%20Won't%20Work,%20When%20Your.pdf (Scroll to bottom pg 2 of this pdf.  This repaired WORD/EXCEL.)  

    I don't know if following directions of the pdf would have also repaired Outlook since I found & worked the first link before the pdf.  MTFBWY

  • Cory - Many thanks!  Your fix worked for me.  For some reason the Application used to perform function on my machine read “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE” -nohome %1.  Changing it to “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” -nohome did the trick!

  • Will let you know if it works for me. Thanks.
