When I clicked on OST file, nothing happens. How to open it?

.OST files
Microsoft Outlook
I decided to go ahead this morning and set up Outlook 2013 this morning. When I clicked on it, it came up with this message: "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The file C:UsersXXXAppDatalocalMicrosoftOutlookXXX_m sn.ost cannot be opened." I looked the file is there, and Outlook '07 works just fine. All of the other O365 programs work great, no problems. How do I open ost file? Ideas?
