I just got a new computer with Vista and have Outlook 2003 and have a smart phone. I have downloaded Windows Device Center which is for Vista instead of activesync. I am able to have it sync my contacts but it doesn't sync my calendar. It leaves my calendar blank. Weird! Any suggestions?
Thanks for any help you can give.

Not sure why your calendar isn't synching, but I have a blackberry with which I record my day's activities and my Outlook2003 gets the info via Google Calendar. I set up my appointments on my desk station, synch to Google calendar and then synch my Blackberry. The Google calendar synch activates every two hours. The only glitch I've found is that if I enter remarks in an appointment on the BB and exit the event but then re-enter and add text, Google calendar only brings across the 1st edit. I suppose if I forced a complete synch it would get all the info.

Regarding why the Smartphone control program is not getting the calendar info directly(? :) ) Are you running that program as an administrator? Perhaps Vista isn't allowing the sharing of the calendar info?

Hope this helps...
