Error: 429 ActiveX component can't create object with Outlook 2003 automation

I'm using late binding to create Outlook email from an Access2K
database. I am not referencing the Microsoft Office 9.0 Object Library
nor the Microsoft Outlook 9.0 Object Library. Instead, I have used the
late binding code:

Dim objOutlook as object
Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(0)
etc...

I have developed it on a machine running Office 2000 and tested it on
a machine running Office 2003. Works fine for me.
However, other users are reporting: Error: 429 ActiveX component can't
create object.
The machine is running Outlook 2003, Access 2000 SR1.
Does anyone have experience with this and a solution?

No solution, but I have a user with the same problem. This one had Office
suite entirely upgraded to 2003 and then everything except Outlook reverted
to 2002 so I have been assuming that this history has gotten the registry a
bit whacked.

I have seen suggestions that reinstalling DAO corrects the problem (didn't
in my case), and also making sure that CDO is installed (haven't tried
yet).

In our case the "File Types" dialog shows Outlook as the registered program
for MSG files, but shows the generic icon that you usually see with
unregistered file types so I know that something is not registered
properly.
