JSI Tip 7058. Hyperlinks do NOT work in Outlook Express or Word on Windows XP?

When you press the underlined blue text in Outlook Express, or Word, nothing happens.

To fix this problem:

1. Copy / Paste the following to a register_DLL.bat file:

@echo off
cd /d %SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32
regsvr32 urlmon.dll
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 browseui.dll
regsvr32 msjava.dll

2. Double-click the register_DLL.bat file.
