Outlook 2007 opens up, then immediately closes. Event Viewer is showing:

.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.1433 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (79FFEE24) (80131506)

I can't seem to find any hotfixes that will run and fix this. Any suggestions?

Have you tried to reinstall the .NET framework 2.0? – Michael K Sep 13 '11 at 15:16

Looks like you have some buggy third-party add-ins installed. Try to start Outlook with /safe command line switch.

After a while of tracking down errors, I found it was due to the Business Contact Manager add-in. – rkalajian Sep 14 '11 at 15:52
