SYMPTOMS
When you install Outlook 2000 on a computer that does not have Microsoft Schedule+ already installed on it, you may receive the following error message:
Unable to Switch to Microsoft Schedule+ as your primary calendar.
CAUSE
When you install Outlook 2000 with the Terminal Server transform file (MST), all of the files necessary to use Schedule+ are not installed. The installation expects that Schedule+ should already be installed.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this problem, use either of the following methods:

Method A

Install the following files into the Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\1033 folder:
Can32.cfg
Req32.cfg
Rpn32.cfg
Rpp32.cfg
Rpt32.cfg
Mcs.ico
Mc.ico
Mrs.ico
Mr.ico
Mrns.ico
Mrn.ico
Mrps.ico
Mrp.ico
Mrts.ico
Mrt.ico
You can get these files from another computer that is running Schedule+ 7.5 on the same operating system, or from the distribution CD for Microsoft Exchange Client 5.0 Service Pack 2.

Method B

Install Schedule+ and Exchange Client 5.0 before you install Outlook 2000.
