Windows 8 link for calendar to Q10

I have Link vers loaded to my Samsung laptop running Windows 8.    I can see photos on PC and my Q10 and successfully run backups.     When I configure Syncronization and it asks me to select which account, the only option it gives me is Windows Contacts.    I can run that synchronization successfully, and I did import contracts from my device (which I then had to import from Windows into Windows Live Mail application to see them in any of my Windows 8 apps).     However, when the only Account option is Windows Contacts, there is no ability to synchronize calendar functions.    On my laptop I have Windows 8 Calendar (which is synced up with Windows Live Calendar).

I have rebooted both laptop and Q10 several times, i have reset the synchronization process etc, but each time the only "Account" it allows me to pick is Windows Contacts....so hence so synchronization of calendar.


Rest of Link seems to work ok, but what i need most is to sync my calendar.

Is this a Windows 8 issue, or a Link issue?

Please disable all antivirus and firewall you might have and try again.

Remember and remind you not to use the Outlook sync function if you are on BES using Blackberry LINK.
