Hi Folks ... have a client trying to sync a blackberry with outlook 2000 - using Windows xp, Outlook 2000 and Desktop manager 4.2.2. Problem is that there is no option to select outlook - only outlook express. Outlook is set as the default mail client - NOT outlook express. Note: client is trying to sync with standalone version of outlook - NOT enterprise or exchange server.

Client had first installled version 4.3 of Desktop manager, but appears that there is no support for outlook 2000 after version 4.2.2 - uninstalled and installed 4.2.2 but no sucfess. Problem is urgent, any assistance would be most welcome...

regards, Dave Melnyk

Hi, apart from upgrading the user to Outlook 2003 or higher you can still download Desktop Manager 4.2 using the link below:

I would also try creating a new user profile and doing a fresh install of Desktop 4.2 after verifying that the Outlook client is setup and working.

   
I hope this helps !

SysExpert ... thanks for the reply. Do you mean the user profile under XP or under Outlook? or both?

Sorry I didnt read your question correctly.

First perform a "Clean Uninstall" of Desktop manager using the guide below and then install Desktop Manager 4.2.2 again.
