ExchangeMapiCdo.MSI fails to install CDO (KBID# 34)
You receive the following when attempting to install CDO (Collaboration Data Objects) on a computer that already has Outlook installed;
Messaging API and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1 cannot be installed with Microsoft Outlook
This as the error implies, occurs because Outlook is already installed on your computer.
To correct this, you will need to use the following installer instead;
Earlier versions of Exchange and Outlook (prior to 2007) came with MAPI/CDO as part of the installer, but for reasons best known to themselves, Microsoft stripped it from the installers of 2007 and newer, requiring you find the download and install it yourself.
Microsoft have also seen fit not to produce a 64 bit version of these, which means it will also only work with 32bit programs.
The download labelled "Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1", which most recommend however, will NOT install on any computer that has Outlook already installed.
Collaboration Data Objects v1.2.1
Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1
