Microsoft is not ready for x64 operations!

by nirjhar

The reasons I am still using the Windows platform are Microsoft Office Suits and Live Writer. I am not a regular blogger but really very fancy about it. I need the fantastic windows live writer. I am really happy.

Microsoft Outlook is my favorite tool to manage Contacts, Tasks, Calendars, and Mails. This is my primary RSS reader too. A few months back I installed Office 2010 x64 version and this story began.

As I have multiple workstations and laptops and have some none exchange email accounts to manage so need a tool to synchronize Contacts and Calendars. Lucky me, Plaxo (www.plaxo.com) did this part for the last few years. After getting into the x64 platform of office this great tool failed to work. Enough nightmare!

Again my windows mobile 6.1 phones got stacked. Windows mobile center can’t recognize outlook x64! Pretty funny, huh? Tried all TechNet forums, Facebook groups and personally informed some friends at Microsoft and the result is zero! Microsoft doesn’t care. Still, I wonder why they’ve introduced the x64 version of office 2010?

Today I have uninstalled Office 2010 x64 and installed Office 2010 x86 again. Dear Microsoft thanks for creating hundreds of registry entries. Thanks a lot!

Sorry to say: Microsoft is not ready for x64 yet!

Why don’t you think that Plaxo is not yet ready for x64, which in reality sounds more obvious.

Yes. Plaxo can’t detect Oulook 2010 x64 where Outlook 2010 x86 is quite ok. I am using it now.

[…] days ago I wrote an article (Microsoft is not ready for x64 operations!) where I was bothered about the support for x64 Outlook. Microsoft even don’t care for it. And […]
