When you attempt to save a file as a vCard, you may receive the following error message:
When you attempt to export or forward a vCard, you may receive the following error message:
The Windows component used for exporting and forwarding vCards was adversely affected when you upgraded to Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.01.
To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).
To obtain SR-1/SR-1a, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
245025 OFF2000: How to Obtain and Install Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a)
NOTE: The vCard fix was completed during the Office SR-1 release development, but it is a separate fix and not part of the core SR-1 files. The fix is available in the Q248120.exe file in the Support folder on the SR-1 CD-ROM. The SR-1 download, by itself, does not include this specific fix. To apply this fix, run the Q248120.exe file.
This fix is also included in the vCard Update for Office 2000 SR-1 that is available on the Windows Update site and it is also included in Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5.
You may be able to work around this problem by opening the contact and then on the Actions menu, clicking Forward instead of Forward as vCard.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1/SR-1a and Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5.
The Windows Address Book provides the vCard feature set. By installing Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01, you update the Wab32.dll file to a version that generates errors when you export and forward vCards from Microsoft Outlook. Using vCards with Outlook Express works correctly with version 5.01 of the Wab32.dll file.
