Can’t find Scanpst.exe file!

I have run into the issue of not being able to find the Scanpst.exe file where it should be. I even had show hidden files olders and show system files turned on. I did a search and still could not find it. This file typically would be in one of two locations:

  • First: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\
  • Second: C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033\

If it is not in either location you can download it from this post HERE. Copy it into C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\ or C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033\ .

The zip contains:

  • SCANPST.EXE
  • SCNPST32.DLL
  • SCNPST64.DLL
  • SCANOST.EXE
  • ORMELEMS.DLL
  • OLMAPI32.DLL

You dont have to register the dll’s. Run the scanpst.exe and point it to your broken pst file.
