I am having the identical problem as below. The user is not
administrator of her NT 4.0 box. The install seems to 
complete but when I reopen Outlook, the wizard never runs and toolbars
are not displayed. The tick is checked in the 
COM add-ins box. I could log on as administrator and load spambayes, but
when the user logs back on, it doesn't work.
When I load on an NT 4.0 box where the user is administrator, it works.

You definitely went through the entire install process?  The last page

get is one offering to let you read a welcome file and has a "Finish"

on it.

This doesn't matter.

This is fine left as a zip.  It may also work if the zip isn't there and

expanded files are; I'm not sure.  If the zip file is still there,

As I said last time, this only appeared with Outlook 2002, and will not

there for Outlook 2000.  Did you try looking in the COM add-ins list?

Instructions, as before:


Try going to the Tools menu, then Options, then the Other tab, then

the Advanced Options button, then the COM add-ins button, and see if

SpamBayes is listed there.  (If it's listed but not ticked, then tick it

OK your way out of the dialogs).

I can't think of any reason that there wouldn't be a log file if the

completed.  The file will be called spambayes1.log, and will be in

your temp directory is (I can't recall if NT has a shared temp folder,

one per user).  There may also be other ones (spambayes2.log, and so on,

to 5, where 1 is the most recent).  As you absoltely sure that it's not

there?  If so, then it's most likely that the install did not complete,

the problem must be very early on (although it's very odd that there
were no
