Outlook Error – Out of memory or system resources.

Posted on August 5th, 2008 |

Today I came across a new error in Outlook 2003. I had a search result set pulled up in my inbox of 700+ items and then tried to move one folder into another. I was prompted with the following error: Can’t move the items. Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again.


Here is another vague Outlook message but at least with this one most people would try closing Outlook and opening it again and the move will then work. Or you can simply close your search results in Outlook and perform the move without error.

0x80070643 Error in Windows Update for Outlook 2003

Posted on August 1st, 2008 |

Do you have some Office related updates from Windows Update that just won’t install? Check your system log and see if it’s error 0x80070643.

This cryptic message is Window’s way of telling you it needs the installation source media. This happens if you choose to remove the installation temp files at the end of the Office 2003 installer. Just put the CD or DVD in your drive and run the updates again. They will now properly apply and you can get rid of that annoying yellow update notification in your task bar.
