    Hi all,

    treo 680 - Entourage (office 2004 suite) - OSX 10.3.9

    When I click my entourage conduit in the hotsync conduit settings panel absolutely nothing happens. I don't get the pop up window/menu to set the conduit settings. So I can't sync with the treo

    I tried every friggin thing. uninstal, re-instal. Whever I instal the conduit using MS Office handheld sync insaller 1.2.1 (that comes with office 2004). I clock the conduit and "ziltsh".

    Aargh; And all this trying to sync my office Mac with the Treo.

    here's the error log :

    Entourage-conduit synchronization failed
    “Entourage-conduit” failed (error = #-1)
    Last sync time and PC ID updated on handheld
    HotSync Complete 23-01-2007 18:21:46


    Suggestion please ?

    I also had this one time long ago. Sorry, I don't remember how I fixed it. Just some suggestions to try:

    repair permissions might work
    remove the plist config files for entourage might help
    delete the conflict notifier from the Palm Hotsync directory

    Fk

    Thanks for the suggestion but it doesn't seem to help.

    It's a pitty as with entourage everything is integrated and I really don't feel like using one app to email and another (Palm Desktop) to manage contacts and agenda.

    any other suggestions ?

    Following did the trick :

    Re-Install office 2004
    Upgrade office 2004
    Uninstall all older office crap still loitering around the system
    Fix permissions
    Install Palm
    Install Conduit
    Sync Treo 680

    versions :

    OSX 10.3.9
    Office 11.3.3
    Palm Desktop 4.2.2
    Hotsync 3.2.1
    Entourage Conduit 1.5

    So far this has worked. Now I just have to figure out some calendar- and category issues. Making Entourage and Treo 680 work together has to be one of the most horizontal learning curves around .

    os 10.4.5


    I dont know where to go now.
    I changed the user names so that they match
    I have dragged all of the non entourage PIM conduits into the "Disabled conduits" folder.
    I have tried to sync it with Palm Desktop (to no avail)
    I have thrown away my "conflict notifier".
    and I still get

    Entourage-conduit synchronization failed
    “Entourage-conduit” failed (error = #-1)

    everything else seems to work.
    can anyone help me.
    feel free to call if you have time

    Hi Jans,

    I feel for you. this is very frustrating indeed. Somewhere a prefs file is corrupted or conflicting.

    What seems to have done the trick for me was to un-install all other versions of office (except for the 2004 one) using the un installer that comes with the Office Install CD. I didn't save the un install log otherwise I would copy paste it here. (it was two pages long).

    Make sure the Entourage Conduit is version 1.5 and not 1.2.1 (as on the CD)

    good luck !!
