Act Outlook Synch Act 2011 Pro

[ Edited ]

Has anyone discovered a work around for the issue of the inability of Act 2011 Pro to synch with a 64 bit version of Office 2010? Is the fix in the works? I really don't want to downgrade to a 32 Bit Office just to use Act Synch.

It's not just the sync, it's all the integration with Office...

Here's the MS recommendation about using Office 2010 x32:

By default, Microsoft Office 2010 installs the 32-bit version of Office 2010 even if your computer is running 64-bit editions of Windows.

Important: The 32-bit version of Office 2010 is the recommended option for most people, because it prevents potential compatibility issues with other 32-bit applications, specifically third-party add-ins that are available only for 32-bit operating systems.

Theanswers are no and not that I know of. Unless you do massive spread sheets in Excel you gain nothing using the 64-bit version of Office (per Microsoft).

Thanks so much for the information. Most helpful. A lot more helpful than Sage tech support. Almost useless as it is.
