    I am posting this as there doesn't seem to be any answers for this
    particular problem on the internet or usenet.

    If you are trying to synchronize your contacts/calendar with PC Suite
    and you are running Outlook 2003 and Windows XP Service Pack 2, then
    you will get an error message when trying to synchronize that says
    "failed to open outlook".

    After talking to technical support it appears that this is an issue
    with Windows XP Service Pack 2 and PC Suite doesn't support this.

    Just thought other people might like to know this.

    Nokia plan on releasing an update to the nokia PC suite at some stage
    that is compatible with SP2, but we'll just have to wait and see.

    Are you, by any chance, running Outlook against a Exchange Server-based
    mailbox? I am getting exactly the problem you describe but it happened
    before applying SP2. It doesn't happen on a PC running XP SP2 with Outlook
    XP (aka 2002).

    Don't, BTW, be suckered by the completely unfounded claim from Oxygen -
    there product doesn't work in these circumstances either - and they have
    acknowledged this in their forums. This is a convenient piece of amnesia on
    their part.

    Yes, I am trying to synchronize this against an exchange mailbox.

    It was working before SP2, albeit with the little "do you want to
    allow access to Microsoft Outlook" window every time you synced.

    Are you guys who ARE getting it working, using Mrouter beta 3? If so,
    where can I get this from to give it a try?

    I tried to get the Oxygen phone manager to work, but it wouldn't work
    either.

    Nokia Tech support have admitted that it is a problem with the current
    version of PC Data Suite and SP2. So unless mrouter 3 works, I'll
    just have to wait until they release an update.

    I have Outlook 2003 and XP SP2 and PC suite works fine. Every time I run
    the synchro process a window opens and asks me if I want the program to
    access the outlook data.
