Yeah, but it's a beta product!  I'm sure it will be compatible by the time the product is released ...

Since Outlook 2010 is still in beta it's not yet a problem.


Office 2010 has been in 'stable release' and 'released to manufacturing' for a while now (no longer Beta)... a lot of us are wondering what the RIM excuse is now.  Any ETA?

Could this be just one more reason to leave Blackberry for one of the I-phones?

No, but these messages are a strong reason for RIM to act...


Obviously not strong enough a reason...

A key element that is missing in these discussions is what phones are having these issues. Filtering through the messages, would i be corect in saying this is predominantly a problem affecting only the Bold 9700 only?

 

 

Very frustrating.

Hi Xanath

 

when you refer the WMDC is Windows Media Device Center, I think you to say Windows Mobile Device Center, and for that you have a 32 e 64 bits version in the link bellow.

Re: Outlook 2010 sync solution - from Blackberry Solution Center

CompanionLink works fine with Outlook 2010 and Destop Manager. However is a $50 option and not very attractive for many. It appears that RIM is taking the same attitude of many software developers: wait for a final release to provide a beta version of their product and blame MS for any incompatibilities or non-working features. I will not be surprised that CompanionLink and RIM worked some type of deal to squeeze more money out of the consumer.

CompanionLink is slower syncing than the Blackberry Desktop Manager.

Re: Outlook 2010 sync solution - from Blackberry Solution Center

When going through the wizard at the Intellisync Setup stage , selecting the Outlook user profile, there is no option to choose the folder (which calendar, which contatcs folder), only "Outlook". The error is "No available message store".With my 8100, it was possible to browse to the desired folder.

 

Outlook 2010 v14.0.4760.1000 on Vista SP2. My Blackberry is the 8900. Desktop Manager v 5.0.1.16, device software 4.5.0.52 (BDM says this is for the 8100 [my previous phone] but I cannot see how to update it) - maybe the device software is the problem?

 

RIM please help!

Re: Outlook 2010 sync solution - from Blackberry Solution Center

Further to my previous post:

My 8900 device software is actually 4.6.1.310, but Blackberry Desktop Manager thinks it is 4.5.0.52, so maybe that's the core of the problem.

I will try uninstalling BDM completeley (I have already tried repairing it) and do a new install.

Is anyone at Blackberry Reading This Board

I wonder if anyone at Blackberry is reading this forum.  Here is my situation.  I rolled out Office 2010 to a group of users in our active directory and felt pretty dump when we found out the Desktop Manager doesn't work with Office 2010.  How can that be?  I understand the beta version from 6 months ago...but its on the shelf to purchase and many firms have started rolling it out to their corporate customers.

 

So do I roll back to office 2007...well I tried that.  Our users don't want to roll back and many are asking for new phones.  We just purchased 10 new iPhones..........Is anyone reading this??????  I sure hope so.  The balance is shifting, we use to be blackberry only.  Since it doesn't work with the latest version of Office 2010 we are moving on.

 

Sure hope you fix this before others migrate away.
