Lets say you are trying to export your contacts to a Tab Delimited Text file or CSV file. The process begins but outlook crashes right away leaving the following event in your event log
Event ID: 1000
Source: Microsoft Office 12
Faulting application outlook.exe, version 12.0.6514.5000, stamp 4a89dc70, faulting module oladd.fae, version 12.0.6500.5000, stamp 49a6ed5f, debug? 0, fault address 0x00008c24.
One of the reasons why it might happen is that Microsoft Exchange Management Tools for Exchange 2007 are installed on the computer and Microsoft says it not supported.
To Fix it
Open command prompt and type fixmapi and press enter (there will be no notification, its instant)
Make sure Outlook is closed while you do the above, reopen Outlook and try to Export it should now work fine.
