Never had problems syncing my BB Curve until I downloaded the latest update for the Desktop Software; now receiving Synchronization Error message saying : MAPI Logon failed. Please run Outlook with the profile "Outlook" and try again.
I was able to synch before with no problems; did not need to update anything in my Outlook so I'm thinking I got a bad update version? I was advised when I opened my BB desktop that an update was available to download so I did not regret this as I cannot get anything to synch..Please advise.Thanks!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
I suggest the following steps (insert plenty of reboots of your PC...not just restarts, but full power down reboots). Also, it is advised that you be logged into the PC on an account with full admin rights. Further, under Vista/Win7, use the "Run As Administrator" option for everything.
Further, it has also been reported that when your user profile on windows (type 'echo %userprofile%' in the command prompt) contains spaces, then the installer will not work. In order to solve this issue, log out of your Windows account and log back in using the local Administrator account (or any other account name without spaces) and install the desktop (for all users).
1) Remove any/all device OS update package(s) from your PC (add/remove programs)
2) Cleanly uninstall the RIM Desktop Software:
3) Get a fresh download of the RIM Desktop Software:
4) Download (to your PC) a fresh copy of your device OS package from your carrier:
5) Install the Desktop Software to your PC
6) Install (also to your PC), the device OS package
7) Start the organizer configuration over:
Hopefully that will get things going again.
Good luck and let us know!

My Curve 8520 has the same sync error after installing Desktop 7. I found that if I brought Outlook down prior to running the sync, I didn't have the problem. At that point it ran fine and I prefer it to the prior version. I read on a Blackberry Support site that a MAPI synchronization support problem, in the software, has been identified and they are waiting for an update to the program..

Thanks! I removed the Blackberry 7 desktop software and re-installed it per the first response but still receiving the error message; I am hoping that BB will send out a patch repair for this...

thanks for the quick response; unforturnately after completing all steps I'm still having the same error but hoping that BB will identify this problem and send out a patch...
