Outlook 2003 | Unable to start Outlook 2003 after installation

So, just installed Outlook 2003 on a computer running Windows 2000 and the only thing you can see when trying to open is this:

A system component, RPC, required by Outlook to connect to the e-mail server is not configured properly. For more information, contact your system administrator.

And when you ask to your system administrator he doesn’t have an idea; you can try this:

Run:

regedt32.exe

Search for this registry entry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Rpc\ClientProtocols]

And add these entries (only the missing ones):

"ncacn_np"="rpcrt4.dll"
"ncacn_ip_tcp"="rpcrt4.dll"
"ncadg_ip_udp"="rpcrt4.dll"
"ncacn_http"="rpcrt4.dll"

Close regedt32, open Outlook 2003 and Enjoy it!
