Default Desktop Manager Issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
I can't seem to figure this out, here is my situation.

I am using outlook 2007 connecting to my exchange server via HTTP over RPC on Exchange Cached Mode on windows XP SP2.

Here is my problem, when i try to sync my calendar, contacts, and tasks i am unable to do so. I can select the outlook profile but the folder box is always blank no matter how many times i have selected browse.

I have installed v4.3, removed it and installed 4.2 SP2 and still can not get this to work, what am i doing wrong?

Thanks for your help?

Jeff

Probably nothing! I tried to install 4.3 on Vista Biz and 4.3 didn't recognize office '07 [outlook and such] so I gave up.

It's really not that different [other than style / looks], so I just stopped wasting my time...

Ok, right, you'll have the best luck with DM 4.2.... SP2.

Did you ever have any DM installed and working yet?

Really? Weird - I have Vista and Office 07 (full version) and didn't have any problems in that aspect. The only problem I had was a dell driver issue with roxio once the programs were installed, but it was a dell problem and roxio had a patch for it.

I had issues with 4.2 sp2. After the initial load of the program on the computer, I wasn't able to load any progs to the phone. I didn't even try syncing and other stuff. What I finally ended up doing was uninstalling ALL the roxio programs through the Program Manager on the computer, and also uninstalling ALL the BB software. After a quick (haha) reboot, I first reloaded my roxio dvd/cd burning software, then installed 4.3 from BB. Rebooted again and found the driver problem, but downloaded and installed the patch straight from roxio's website.

Wirelessly posted (8700c: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) BlackBerry8300/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/102)

Yep, it didn't want to play nice for me. Once I saw the only real difference was the look / style I decided it wasn't worth the hassle. If their were some new bells and whistles I may have proceeded further, but with most things for me it's a time vs. effort thing and I found that I had better things to do with my time then monkey around with 4.3.

From what I've read here, some get it to work fine and others don't.
