Outlook 2000 compatible with Vista?
I probably already know the answer to this, but it's always worth asking at Pinstack. You never know what clever things will pop out of this site!
I have a Vista Machine, and Outlook 2000.
1. Will these two play together, or am I wasting my time.
2. If they are compatable, how can I get DM to recognize the prog.
Thanks in advance!
Well...here's the deal - Desktop Manager 4.2 does not support Outlook 2000, however 4.2 does (including sp2). Now, if you can get 4.2 and Vista to play nice (possible) and if Vista is OK with Outlook 2000 (cant speak for the Vista on this) then you are good!
I have DM 4.3 and the option doesn't even come up. I'm running 4.5 on my curve.
So this brings up a couple of questions.
1. Is the DM 4.3 the problem? will downgrading to 4.2, then run outlook in compatability mode work?
2. Will 4.5 o/s work with DM 4.2? I thought that 4.3 o/s and later had to run DM 4.3.
3. Am I just being cheap? should I just pony up for the newer version of outlook? lol
4.3 is your biggest problem. If you want to sync with Outlook 2000 you need to uninstall it and install 4.2.2 (which I beleive will work with 4.5 but not sure)
Does your vista work fine with your outlook?
I can open and use outlook for desktop organization, but haven't been able to integrate email. I can't ever get outlook to find the severs for email account. I think it has to do with the new integration of outlook express into the windows mail component. Leave it to microsoft to complicate things.
No big deal, I just use my BB for email anyhow.
I haven't found anything on compatability with 4.5 os and any DM. Probably because it hasn't been "released" yet.
read thru the 4.5 discussion thread - thats your best bet. I am pretty sure I have seen posts from users with DN 4.2 and OS 4.5
So DM 4.3 will not work with outlook 2000? But 4.2 with service pack will? (Older version) Im running OS 4.3 on my Sprint Curve.. And with 4.2 DM with SP , I couldnt get my calander to sync with outlook, but everything else syncd just fine.
