Default synching with outlook on a virtual pc

Please Login to Remove!

So for work I have a separate virtual machine (MS Virtual PC) set up. I use outlook for email and calendar.

I can't seem to figure out how to get my Curve to sync with Outlook on the virtual machine though. I have BB Desktop Manager installed on it, but when I connect the BB to the USB on my laptop the virtual machine doesn't recognize it.

I've looked into the settings for the virtual machine to assign a USB port to the VM, but can't seem to find anything.

Does anyone know how to make this work?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Welcome to the forum. Which version of VPC are you using?

I used VPC 2004 for a while and I'm pretty sure it did not support USB. You might look through the questions in the Microsoft Virtual PC newsgroup. I searched USB -- lots of results come up.
