If you installed the new Desktop Manager over an older installation, try uninstalling, and then delete the following directories before reinstalling:
- C:\Documents and Settings\userid\Application Data\Research In Motion
- C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion
- C:\Program Files\Research In Motion
is your login ID (in fact it couldn't hurt to check all the profile directories under Documents and Settings and make sure there aren't any other RIM directories).
One thing - if you've installed any third party apps or device firmware, it may be under C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files
- and you should move those folders before deleting the Research In Motion directory.
Once you've uninstalled and removed these directories, check Outlook's Calendar and Contacts using a List View that has no filters and shows icons in the left column (usually Events for Calendar and Phone List for Contacts). Look for any conflicts which can cause sync problems before reinstalling.
Finally, use Desktop Manager 4.1 - version 4.2's enhancements only work with the Pearl for now.
