In the case of the GPG Outlook plugin, it's no problem. Just register
the new version of gpgexch.dll and the procedure is done. Or if you
just overwrite the old gpgexch.dll, you even don't need to do this.

(make sure you also overwrite libgpgmedlgs.dll!)

Do you use the version 0.99.4? It is known that earlier version of
the plugin can crash O2003/SP1.

I can't confirm this right now, but I suggest to update to 0.99.4
and then try again. We will provide a new version of the plugin in
the next week.

For users who uses the plugin and it crashes Outlook, it would be
useful to have the debug output of Dr. Watson. Please compress it
before you send it because it's very large. You can either send these
reports to outlgpg at g10code.com or to me (twoaday at freakmail.de) directly.
