Default Outlook not listed as available desktop application

Please Login to Remove!

I've a Blackberry Bold and cannot configure synchronization for my tasks and calander.
When I try to configure the tasks, calander or email, Outlook is not listed as an option in the "Select desktop application" window. Only outlook express and yahoo.

How can I overcome this?

Outlook 2003 is certainly usuable in DM 4.6, have you tried rebooting the PC?

If it doesn't see the abilibty for Outlook, it doesn't give you the option.

Yes. I've even tried reinstalling the desktop manager.
Do you know how the Desktop Manager "sees" the available applications?

Yes, it looks possible. There must be some config or setting on my laptop that is preventing the DM from "seeing" the outlook application. Hence, my question about what is required for the DM to "see" the application.

By any chance have you moved the .pst file for Outlook? That will cause a problem.
