This worked for me like a charm. In my case it was Facebook which was selected in the options for the calendar. I have several email accounts and was unsure as to which one to choose. Fortunately, the first one I chose worked (I chose the one that is configured in Outlook 2010).

After an hour on hold this was an easy fix. On the device go to OPTIONS and ADVANCED OPTIONS and DEFAULT SERVICES..
next make sure that the email address under calendar is one that is supported and used in Outlook on the desktop PC - then you can set it up - no problem..

I only have one email address set up on this device.
I do not have any other calendar services listed on the Default Services screen.
I only have one CICAL service book entry.
I only have one calendar in Outlook.
I do not (any longer) have the Facebook app installed.
So far, the only workaround I have found is to uninstall Desktop 6.0, choosing the option to also delete all configuration settings. Then, install Desktop 5.0. Works fine.

Thanks, Abrogan--I went back and tried your advice again and it worked great! My setting was already on my email adress, but i changed it to facebook, saved it, and changed it back to my email and saved it and it worked!!! The calendar no longer showed "not installed"--it immediately showed a two way connection with MS Outlook and synced beautifully! THANKS SO MUCH!

Well that is ridiculous, I had to allow facebook to access my calendar just so that I could unselect the facebook calendar and then it worked doing the same as above.
That is an unnecessary pain in the arse. But it is now fixed. Thanks

I did the same thing today: using a BB Curve 8330, installed BB Desktop software 6.0.0 and noticed the calendar had "(not installed)". I found something that worked for me - surprisingly quickly - which you may want to try. You have to go into your "Options" on the BlackBerry and, under "Advanced Options," look at "Default Services." Your calendar should list your email under it and not at app (mine was reading Facebook). Try this even if you told the Facebook app not to integrate with your calendar. I disconnected then reconnected my BB and the sync started immediately for my calendar. You will need to configure your settings first.
I am using BB 9630 Tour and had same problem. I had 3 emails connected - no apps. Switched from one email to another as the "default" for calendar, and sync for calendar is now present and functional!! Thanks abrogan!!

This fix is not working for me!
I am using Windows 7, and Outlook 2010.
I just got my blackberry, and was really psyched to download this today, since I have not been able to sync with Outlook 2010 at all with the old version of the Desktop Software.
Now it will sync my contacts and my tasks, but it says "not installed" next to calendar! I tried changing the default setting to facebook and back, and it will sync when facebook is selected (though none of my Outlook events sync - only the facebook ones), but I really don't want to sync my personal calendar to facebook!
I tried deleting the facebook calendar, but no luck.
Anyone come across any other solutions I could try?

Thanks to the original poster for the Default solution.
Others are having problems still, as did I. My solution:
At this point, all new entries on either Outlook or on device will sync.
I must say, this has been a royal pain in the... for what is supposedly new and improved software which, I might add, takes over twice the time to load as did Manager v. 5.

This is helpful but in my case it was not this simple, because my phone was already set up as described. FWIW, I'm running BBerry Desktop on WinXP SP3, using Outlook 2007. After scanning a couple of dozen posts I tried this:
I opened the Facebook app (installed on this phone _before_ Desktop 6 was released), went to its options, and told it to sync with my Blackberry calendar (I had specifically denied this permission when installing the FB app).
Then I went to OPTIONS / ADVANCED OPTIONS / DEFAULT SERVICES as described, changed the calendar dropdown to Facebook, then saved the change.
Finally I went back into OPTIONS / ADVANCED OPTIONS and changed the calendar dropdown back to my desired e-mail address.
When I connected the phone to the PC, I was able to get it to work. I had to run the configuration utility because I'd previously reset the configuration while attempting to fix this problem.
Thanks to all who contributed on this thread. As for RIM, this is the kind of problem I would expect them to discover and fix prior to releasing the software. Or, as soon as the problem surfaced, RIM needed to communicate directly with BBerry owners (through the service providers if necessary) and alert us to wait on the upgrade, or give us an easy fix.
In RIM's defense, when they exposed an API to Facebook, we all became vulnerable to Facebook's well-recognized aggressiveness. Until I hear otherwise, I'll assume that installing the FB app was responsible for this hiccup.
