Default Unable to sync to Outlook

Please Login to Remove!

Evening all,

I'm having problems trying to sync my Outlook contacts/appointments.

I am using XP SP3 and have Outlook 2007 and BBDM 4.7 but the only options it gives me are:

<none>
Microsoft Outlook Express
ASCII Importer/Exporter
Yahoo!

The confusing thing is I don't even have Express installed on the machine.

Any ideas please? Alternatively, is there a way I can manage the contacts on my BB through my PC (like you can with the Nokia Suite).

Cheers all!

Mav

DM is screwed up if it isn't listing Outlook as an option. Re-install it.

Have tried reinstalling it twice now :( Is it worth trying an older version of DM?

coule be a permissions issue also. do you log onto a Windows domain? im thinking maybe youre running the DM install with an account that for what ever reason cant read your outlook profile.

Nope, single user machine where I am admin and not on a network.

Only other thing I could think of is that from Office 2007, Outlook is the only thing installed as I use Office 2003 for everything else. Possibly getting confused?
