  1. Click Start>Control Panel>Programs>Programs and Features.
  2. Click the Office program you want to repair, and then clickChange.
  3. Do one of the following:
  • In Office 2013, click either Quick Repair or Online Repair.

 

Try both the Quick Repair and Online repair then open Outlook again. Let me know if the error message is still there.
