Synching to Outlook Error

I have my curve and am trying to get addreses in from Outlook 2007.  This is non-enterrpise (personal).

 

I setup the desktop software, and configure the synch to work w/ Outlook.  I get done w/ setup and click finish and an error box pops up saying: "Folder is no longer part of the system data source or the folder could not be found." 

 

Any idea what this means?  I have 200+ contacts in Outlook address book.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Synching to Outlook Error

Are you going through Desktop Manager?

Re: Synching to Outlook Error

Do you get this error when you are running the Installation program or when you are starting the Desktop Manager program?

 

Sounds like this is an Install progeram error. (saved to a file server that was no longer available when the install program was closing?)

I'd download the program from Blackberry again and save it to youer desktop.
Run the install form there and then only when the program has installed and closed back to the desktop, only then can you delete the installation program.

 

Let us know how you go, because I've never heard of that error before (and no listing on the BTSC).

The error seems to be connected to having a connector for your contacts...   :smileyhappy:   Pardon the pun.

 

The post on the above thread reads:

Ran into this error for a user who had DM 4.2 and was using MSN within Outlook. User had a local .pst associated with the Outlook account, and was manually copying data into those folders for the Blackberry to synchronize with. After adjusting a few account settings everything stopped working.

The user uninstalled 4.2 and upgraded to 4.3, but still no dice. The issue was that 4.3 wanted to see Outlook's mail delivery location set to the Outlook account, not the online msn account. (Outlook - Tools - Account Settings - Mail Delivery location)

We changed the mail delivery settings and applied them (leaving Outlook open), ran DM and set all of the synchronization settings and ran sync. After that completed we went back into Outlook and set the delivery path back. This prevented Outlook from messing with the calendars and folders as it warns with the first change.

Synchronization kept working after that.

This is the case if you have your Outlook hooked to a remote file.  Our office uses these connectors for Outlook.
