    Sigh... this is a huge problem for me... need to put in appointments twice manually...

    I seriously wonder what the problem is and if there is any tweak to solve this....

    Or when RIM will fix this (I am not really confident in RIM fixing this in 2010 and the first half of 2011)...

    FML...

    --------------
    Edit:
    I am sure that there is nothing wrong with my settings, as DM6 would pop up a window saying "DM6 does not support syncing with 64-bit Outlook".

    Yep, the OP should only be pissed at themselves for wanting to be the first on their block running 64-bit Office when even Microsoft strongly recommends against it. I'm sure the OP doesn't have any 2GB Excel spreadsheets or any other valid reason for installing the 64-bit version

    From TechNet:

    64-bit editions of Office 2010
    Published: May 12, 2010
    Processors that are 64-bit are becoming the standard for systems that range from servers to desktop computers. The 64-bit systems can use more virtual and physical memory than 32-bit systems. This lets users work with much larger data sets than they could previously, and to analyze and solve large computational problems. Microsoft Office 2010 introduces native 64-bit versions of Microsoft Office products to take advantage of this larger capacity. For example, this additional capacity is needed only by those Microsoft Excel users who require Excel spreadsheets that are larger than 2 gigabytes (GB). The 32-bit version of Office 2010 provides the same functionality and is also compatible with 32-bit add-ins. Therefore, the 32-bit version of Office 2010 is installed by default.

    Office 2010 also provides support for 32-bit Office 2010 applications that run on 64-bit Windows operating systems by using Windows-32-on-Windows-64 (WOW64). WOW64 is the x86 emulator that enables 32-bit Windows-based applications to run seamlessly on 64-bit Windows systems. Office 2010 lets users continue to use existing Microsoft ActiveX Controls, Component Object Model (COM) add-ins, and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), which are primarily 32-bit because no 64-bit versions are available yet for many add-ins. Supporting 32-bit Office 2010 applications that run on 64-bit operating systems allows for better compatibility with controls, add-ins, and VBA.

    The recommendations for which edition of Office 2010 to install are as follows:

    • If users in your organization depend on existing extensions to Office, such as ActiveX controls, third-party add-ins, in-house solutions built on previous versions of Office, or 32-bit versions of programs that interface directly with Office, we recommend that you install 32-bit Office 2010 (the default installation) on computers that are running both 32-bit and 64-bit supported Windows operating systems.


    • If some users in your organization are Excel expert users who work with Excel spreadsheets that are larger than 2 gigabytes (GB), they can install the 64-bit edition of Office 2010. In addition, if you have in-house solution developers, we recommend that those developers have access to the 64-bit edition of Office 2010 so that they can test and update your in-house solutions on the 64-bit edition of Office 2010.

    This article applies to the current release of Office 2010. For a visual representation of this information, see 64-bit Client Installation of Microsoft Office 2010 (Download details: 64-bit Client Installation of Office 2010), which includes supported scenarios, deployment considerations, and an overview of the Setup process.

    Well. I indeed need the 64-bit Office because, I am doing this project to develop a system to forecast the baggage demand for each single flight on any day before the day of operation, for several major North America airlines, and some of them specified that they would extract the data from the server and want to do the job in MS Access on analysts' desktops with those output files. (probably low ROI if they want me to integrate the forecasting system with their server)

    And somehow I am coding in VBA in Access and link it to some statistical computation package. And you guess the commonsense input data files size for airline industry?

    LOL... Most of them are obviously more than 2GB.

    Thus... please don't jump to conclusion and judge me as some kind of nerd who doesn't know what he needs.

    Theres a whole thread dealing with OL 2010 and DM, and there are plenty of posts explaining why DM will NOT support 64 bit version of OL2010 until 2011.
    This is the link http://forums.crackberry.com/f153/mi...anager-269932/

    If you have to use OL2010 64 bit, you can forget of using DM to synch the data. Sorry, this has been discussed and explained too many times.
    But as long as Microsoft recommends the 32 bit version RIM will not release a DM vesion compatible with the 64 bit version...

    You can try a third party app such as Companion Link, which may synch with the 64 bit version of OL2010.

    Or you can try installing Office 2010 64 bits, minus Outlook and install the 32 bit version of OL. That would solve your synch problem and also allow you to use the adavantages of Office 64 bit.

    Hmmm. I was just trying to find a tweak.... maybe using Google Calendar Sync as the intermediate step?

    haha... my bad for not searching first as I thought not many people would use 64-bit Office just like hytran said.

    Anyway, your method should work, but it's a hassle to get the 32-bit Office and probably I cannot activate it with my 64-bit version activation code?

    You should have no problem activating the 32 bit version of OL with your 64 bit license key. I've done it with no issue.
