(2007-03-30) Synching Stopped Between Phone And Outlook

Posted by Jorge on 2007-03-30


I use a Nokia 6600 and the only three requirements I have with that thing are:

  1. I’m able to make a phone call
  2. I’m able to synchronize my Outlook contacts with it
  3. I’m able to use the navigation system on it

(1) is important because phones at the moment can do a lot of things you can’t ever imagine. So, sometimes I wonder and ask myself "can I make a phonecall?"

(2) is important because I use my Outlook for all my contacts and I want to sync them with the phone instead of re-entering everything into the phone

(3) is important because I sometimes need it to go to a customer. For example, not that I do not know how to drive to Amsterdam, the important thing here is to find the actual address in an easy way without screwing around with maps etc. In the near future I’m going to buy a more advanced navigation system that can be used on a motorcycle for touring. Of course that one will also work in a car. So the navigation system on the phone will not be needed anymore

However, a while ago the synching stopped. It did not work anymore. I use outlook 2007 and the sync software officially only supports Outlook 2000. I used Outlook 2003 and 2007 and it worked without a problem. Stupid enough it stopped working. Searching and searching and searching… nothing…Sh!t… Today I tried again and found the easiest solution ever for the most annoying problem between a phone and outlook.

The error shown was: "Failed To Open Outlook"

The solution: rename MAPI32.DLL in %WINDIR%SYSTEM32 to MAPI32.DLL.OLD and then execute from a command prompt window: FIXMAPI… and your done!

Whatever…. I got the solution from here. Thanks!!!

 

Cheers,
Jorge
