Windows Mobile Device Center - Outlook has not been installed

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Andy Boniface, Jun 13, 2007.

  1. Running Windows Vista Home Premium, Office 2003

    Attempting to sync with PDA (O2 XDA 2i) running Windows Mobile 2003 2nd

    Was working, deleted partnership to try another device. Now when trying to
    re-establish partnership I'm told "Outlook has not been installed" when it
    plainly has.

    If I persist and create partnership without Outlook (contacts,appointments,
    inbox) then Mobile Device Center then generates exception:

    System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800706BE): The remote
    procedure call failed. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BE)
    at Microsoft.WindowsMobile.IOutlookInfo.Initialize(Int64 handle)

    Tried to repair Office 2003 and Mobile Device Center - not helping.

    Is not specific to device type, original error occurs before partnership

    PS: same device works just fine with XP pro/Office 2003 & ActiveSync4.5

  2. Disbelief:

    this has bugged me for weeks - within 1 hour of posting I found the answer.
    I had rogue entries for Address Books. Outlook didn't complain but it must
    have fouled up Activesync/WMDC

    Ensured these were all cleaned up and it syncs like a dream again!!
