I've installed BDM6 on my 64bit Windows 7 environment and have found that Desktop Manager cannot find a trace of Office 2010
I then checked the Technical spec and found out that a 64bit system is unsupported... Which I find amusing....
Does anybody have a work around solution so I can synchronize my data?

As I understand it, 64-bit Windows is not the issue but 64-bit Office is! Even Microsoft is still recommending one install the 32-bit version of Office 2010 instead of the 64-bit version, even though you may be using the 64-bit platform. You might consider downgrading to the 32-bit version of Office unless you really, really need the very few features, like the ability to build really huge spreadsheets, that 64-bit gives you over 32.

Don't bother trying to downgrade to 32 bits windows 7 or to 32 bits Office 2010.
I can confirm ... as can 113 participants in a thread higher up this blog, that DM6 is a totally UNWORKABLE release full of fatal bugs.
DM6 was announced as the solution for people running Office 2010 32 bits ... well it is entirely useless... so best you change phone or keep an eye on this FORUM to see when the other two streams are likely to be "closed" out with solution!
The two threads are : "Desktop Manager version 6.0 Crashing" and "Updated to DM6, cannot Synchronise".... if you have any spare time,browse through these ... makes for a good read and lots of suggestions but no solutions in sight!
And yes RIM initially announced that they would not both about office 64bit until 2011!
