Outlook 2007 setup problems

I recently installed the Windows 7 RC and then Office 2007. When I tried to set up my Exchange account in Outlook 2007, it always failed with the error “Outlook cannot log on.” This is a known issue with a February 2009 patch; a hotfix is available:

Error message when you create a profile in Outlook 2007 after you install the cumulative update that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 961752: “Outlook cannot log on”

I wish they’d already released this hotfix as a new patch; it would have saved a lot of frustration. But I suspect they haven’t fully tested the hotfix yet, so there may yet be more frustration in the future! *laughs!*
