    I have 5 Workstations Using WindowsXP. The Address Book Is Shared from One
    Workstation and is Accessable with Full Read and Write Permissions by Anyone
    on the Network. It has been like this since back in win98 and works fine.
    Now I am Testing Vista Ultimate on One Workstation.
    BIG PROBLEM WITH CONTACS.
    If I Try to Access wab from the Vista PC, it wants to Import it, thats OK
    But Any Changes made there are not made in the wab.
    Like wise if I try and access Contacts from an XP workstation it can't open
    it.
    So it appears I have to go One Way, Either Install Vista on All my
    Workstations Or Stay with XP.
    Am I missing something or is there some Third Party App that will make wab
    Usable in Vista.

  2. I'm afraid you're not missing anything.
    I'm not aware of any third party app to fix this.

    Thanks for Replying Peter, No I do not Use Outlook, Only Outlook Express.
    Also Thanks to Garry for his Comments.
    Anyway Guys, I have Ditched Vista because of these and other Conflicts and
    decided to stay with XP for Now.
    Regards.
