Disclaimer: This tutorial is for education puspose only. Read ToS and EULA of product you’ll use.

I’m not very good at english. So it’ll be quick one.

Ingredients:

  • Microsoft Office 2003/2007/2010 (retail, not beta)
  • Microsoft Office Outlook installed

Download Microsoft Outlook Social Connector Provider for Facebook and Update for Outlook Social Connector (KB983403). Choose carefully between 32 or 64bit matching with your system.

Install KB983403 first. If you encounter “expected product version not available” error, this tuts is for you, If you don’t go ahead and install OSC-Fb.

Force Install KB983403

Put KB983403 (e.g: osc-kb983403-fullfile-x86-en-us.exe, for 32bit) and OSC-Fb (OSCFB-x86-en-us.exe) on one directory like “C:\OSC” and rename it to OSC.exe dan OSCFB.exe

open Command Prompt go to “C:\OSC”. Type this command to extract OSC.exe:

OSC /extract:C:\OSC\OSC

After finished, you should see content of “C:\OSC\OSC” should be like this:

Inside “C:\OSC\OSC” make 2 directories OSCI and OSCX.

Next, download MSP extractor MSIX here. and extract MSIX.EXE and MSIX.PDB to “C:\OSC\OSC”

Run CMD and go to directory “C:\OSC\OSC”, and type command below:

MSIX oscintl-en-us.msp /OUT C:\OSC\OSC\OSCI

MSIX osc-x-none-en-us.msp /OUT C:\OSC\OSC\OSCX

Enter to both OSCI and OSCX, you’ll find PATCH_CAB. Rename it to PATCH.CAB and extract it…

Find SOCIALCONNECTORRES.DLL_1033 on MSCI. Rename this file to SOCIALCONNECTORRES.DLL.
