Outlook should install without a problem.

It you got the error during installation, start Crossover Setup window
and see if it shows outlook as being installed.

If so, then click on the entry and click  Repair/ Remove with Outlook
in the CD Rom drive.

Then select repair and it should go through and and fix it.

If Outlook isn't in the Crossover Setup window, then you may have an
unsupported version. If so, attempt to install it as unsupported.

I have the same problems when I install applications that go with
Microsoft Office. For example, word does the same thing. But it always
winds up working.
