Synchronising Calender on my Bold 9900 with PC running Windows 8

I cannot synchronise my calender either by wifi or manually.  My emails work fine and synchronise. I am using Windows Live Mail. When i try to synch manually I get a message headed "The organiser applications on your computer are not supported" with a further message saying refer to www.blackberry.com/desktops/docs/ for a list of supported applications.  This page no longer exists. My PC is an HP Pavilion 23 which came with Microsoft programmes, so i can't really understand what's going wrong. Any suggestions please?

Are you using the built in Calendar App in Windows 8 or anothe rprogram such as Outlook?


Currently the Calendar App in Windows 8 is not one of the supported PIM apps to sync with.

A PIM is a Personal Information Manager such as Outlook or Lotus Notes. The Windows Live Mail program is not supported.

As to being supported soon I have no idea. 

 

As to being able to sync your calendar to your phone, you would either need to purchase a copy of Outlook and use the Hotmail connector available or move your calendar to another service such as Google which supports synchronisation over the air.
