    does not work with VISTA pim features.

    Advertisement



    I got an 8800 for work so gave my wife my 7290.

    Trying to get the 7290 to sync with our home computer (Vista Premium) has been a big problem. What used to be known as outlook express is now called "Windows Mail" "Windows Contacts" and "Windows Calendar". I have installed 4.2 w SP1. There is no option to sync the blackberry! The only MS software it seems to work with is outlook.

    Does anyone know if RIM will be updating so that Vista users can sync calendar and contacts?

    There seems to be no info regarding this on the RIM website.

    Thanks

    I installed 8703e Desktop Software upon Vista Premium. When configuring the DM IntelliSync, it was straightforward to sync MS Outlook contacts from home PC; they all downloaded onto the 8703e via USB. However, DM Intellisync could not find the PIM data file for the MS Outlook calendar. 'Browse' button to specify the MS Outlook calendar data file was not enabled. Thoughts?

    I MS Outlook set as the default program for your Calendar?

    Tools > Internet Options > Programs

    Contact Research In Motion Limited for support
    This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between Windows Vista and this version of Blackberry software. This program was created by Research In Motion Limited.

    anyone know about a solution yet?
