Default DM dies when syncing Outlook Calendar

Please Login to Remove!

When I first got my BlackBerry it would sync nicely to my Outlook Calendar (Outlook 2007). But now every time I try to sync, it DM stops responding and shuts down. The issue appears right after it says something to the effect of "Reading from Outlook".

This all seems to have started after I upgraded Outlook 2007 to SP1. Is this a known issue?

I'm running on Vista. I have DM 4.3 and the latest SW version for my Pearl. I am not connecting to a BES server. I only use it with my Gmail account and my personal install of Outlook.

All I want to be able to do is sync my Calendar and Contacts between my Pearl and Outlook and that seems to be a miserable failure. Are there any work -arounds?

Haven't heard of this...

First, try a battery pull and resync.

Also, if there isn't any calendar data on the Pearl that you must have, you can try clearing the calendar databases on the Pearl and then syncing again.

Use the Backup program in the Advanced mode to highlight and Clear the Calendar and Calendar All databases in the right pane.

Then resync.

battery pull + resync doesn't help

There are a few entries that I need from the Pearl so that might be bad...plus I definitely don't think that would be a good idea with my contacts list...would like to do that only as a last resort

Read my post again...my suggestion was to only clear the Calendar entries from the Pearl, not everything.

Good luck.
