MS Project 2013

In MS Project 2010 while in a resource sheet you were able to add recourse - address book and select from your Outlook contacts in your Outlook.
With 2013 when we try to do this we get an error:
"The address list cannot be displayed. The contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted, or you do not have permissions. For information on how to remove this folder from Outlook Address Book, See Microsoft outlook Help."

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It still works in 2013 - at least on my setup here.

I would suspect a registry entry or permissions problem, possibly caused by the upgrade.
but without more information about your specific environment its difficult to suggest a way forward are there any Syslog entries you can find?

Generically: try repairing office, then Project and if you see no improvement uninstall Project altogether, clean up the registry with a commercially available cleaner and reinstall.

these are new full edition installs their Office and MS Project seem to be working just fine until they try to use address book. They can select Active Directory which is another option but that only gives them company users
So the AD address list works ok?

Iwe have to assume therefore that the problem lies in outside project
In Outlook on the home ribbon there is an 'address book' button under the find pod, choose that and you should reach the same contact selection dialog you see in project

if so hit tools, options, and you should see a dialog titled 'addressing' - if you change the default to the target you were using in project do you get the same message
