Welcome To JustAnswer!

My name isXXXXX am one of the Experts who will assist you today!

Question.. Is this teh first time you have tried connectiing outlook to Icloud.. Or.. was it working previously and suddenly quit working?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It worked when I first set up the Iphone 4s. I was using outlook 2007 at the time. The coloring on the calendar was abnormal and tasks never worked. It then stopped working all together. I then upgraded to outlook 2010 32 bit and it has never worked. I sync to icloud from the 4s which i also have on my pc and it works fine.
Expert:  Dustin replied 2 years ago.
Aha.. When you upgraded to outlook 2010.. Did you completely remove office 2007 and outlook 2007 with the office removal utility from MicroSoft..??
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no, i upgraded by downloading it from microsoft, but the sync had stopped working while i was still using outlook 2007, so that is not the problem
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I think that this may be the hear of the problem, but I don' t know how to fix the not available
Expert:  Dustin replied 2 years ago.
Right! But.. Since outlook 2007 and outlook 2010 share a lot of registry entries.. If the sync wasnt working with 2007 then installing 2010 wouldnt fix the issue, it would continue the issue.

Ok. so you downloaded and installed from microsoft.. In that case.. We should be able to do a full removal of microsoft office 2007 and 2010.

then.. reinstall just 2010 to get a clean install of outlook 2010 ( this wont erase any of your pst files / mail files, as they are stored in an alternate location from the program files/ reg entries)

before we proceed, I just wanted to mention that fixing syncing issues can be tedios and time consuming, but they are fixable..

So in short, were going to

1. completely remove office 2007 + 2010 using the office removal tool
2. restart computer and reinstall only office 2010
3. setup the outlook 2010 sync again, and if it still doesnt work. Then create a new mail profile in outlook, and start the sync again..

So to start with.. I need to know if you downloaded only outlook 2010 from Microsoft. Or did you pay for the whole office 2010 suite?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
only outlook 2010
Expert:  Dustin replied 2 years ago.
Ok.. As far as Office 2007.. did you have the full version of office 2007 installed.. Or just outlook 2007?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I had office standard 2007, and oneNote home and Student 2007, and outlook connector, and now outlook 2010
Expert:  Dustin replied 2 years ago.
Thanks..

Before we proceed.. Id like to try and download and install the i cloud control panel again.

to do so go to the link below

http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1455

download it, save it.. And then install it. once fully installed.

restart the computer..

Then start the icloud control panel, make sure you register your icloud control panel

then.. inside the control panel, does it show outlook as a highlighted option to sync to?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
