Hello
Begin 12/2004 I purchased StarSkin Premium and installed it on my system that runs with Windows XP sp2 (fully patched and updated).
Although StarSkin works well and is satisfying, it seems to be incompatible with Outlook 2000 (registered and with al patches and updates). With StarSkin installed (with or without Premium skins), every time I want to start-up Outlook 2000, my whole system freezes completely in a second and after even waiting an hour or more nothing changes so I have to reboot by turning of power.
I already tried un- en reinstall of Outlook 2000 and idem for StarSkin but the problem persists. As I don't wanna give-up Outlook 2000, StarSkin is somehow useless for me ...
Anybody familiar with this problem ? Does someone how to fix this ?
Thanks in advance and best greetings

Do you have "theme emulation" enabled? You may wish to turn it off. At least for Outlook 2000. Usually it helps to avoid problems with old (pre-XP) applications. And I'd upgrade to Outlook 2002 or 2004 in any case Smile

Hello,
Disabling "theme emulation" does not solve the problem. I might upgrade Outlook 2000 or use another e-mail programm, but I'd be much hapier if it could work with Outlook 2000.
Anyway, thanks for your response.

Uncheck "Emulate Theme Support" or Add Outlook 2000 to the black list.
Find its EXE file and add it in the list with the caption "Do not emulate theme support for the following"
