Microsoft Outlook uses MSMAPI32.dll file, which is a module associated with MAPI32 (Windows Messaging API).

If this fails for the issues rooting from MSMAPI32.dll, you fall in inevitable situations of losing your important data.

The Scanpst.exe file is a component of Outlook installation.
So any errors in this installation can also prevent the associated tool-Inbox Repair Tool-from running. For example, suppose your Outlook PST is corrupted for some reasons. But when you locate Scanpst.exe file to start the PST file repair program, it fails and gives the below error message:

“The procedure entry point DDLUninitinstance@0 could not be located in the dynamic link library MSMAPI32.dll.”

Some probable reasons for the above error to occur are:
