iCloud reuires only one version of Outlook installed

Q: iCloud reuires only one version of Outlook installed

Since I have Office 2013 w/ Outlook installed, I also have the preinstalled basic Outlook that comes to Win 8. So I guess according to iTunes I need to uninstall the generic Outlook, yet I do not see it under the control panel, where you modify or delete apps.

Any suggestions?

Hello world, I've given up on shutdown problems now, The latest problem is that I can't send mail on my new version of outlook express. Any tips gratefully received!

A:I've just installed the newest version of outlook express and it doesn't work!

Lucy, it would be very helpful to us if you let us know what is happening. You say that you can't send mail. What does that mean? Do you get an error message? Does the mail just sit in the Outbox without explanation? Can you receive mail? Have you created an email account for yourself?

Hi i just got a new computer and trying to set up outlook mail with my gmail account.
i have worked with Microsoft every day setting up the email account to the data file. i have icloud for my contacts and calendar only NOT my email. every time micorost fixes the email account it disappears and gets replaced by the icloud account and I can not receive mail. it has happened 5 times. i have worked with level 2 guys in microsoft and
it still happens. i can not get help with Apple because i do not have a mac.
why would the icloud interfere with my mail in outlook to download it and wipe it away.
when this happens i can not get my mail in outlook
any suggestions? is it outlook, icloud or my computer
thank you

I have windows 7 and outlook 2010 on a PC. When linking to icloud and enabling it to synch with icloud, icloud took the contacts off my computer (at least it seems that way). In trying to resolve the issue and talking with Apple and Omnitech, a variety of solutions were tried. I now have all my contacts in the right categories showing up on my PC, but it appears that they are not on the PC but in the cloud. My goal is to copy one of my categories, mailing list, into a  new separate folder in the folder list in order to use it to merge with Word and make labels. In the past, I could right click on the mailing list category and drag it to the new folder that I created. It would then ask if I wanted it to copy the file there or move it. I copied it to the new folder and then was able to merge it with word. Currently, when I try to drag the file to the folder, it indicates that this action can not be done. It appears to me that the reason this is occurring is that the contact file is in the cloud not on the computer.  ?? I would like to create a file with my contacts on the PC with the contacts in the right categories and not duplicating what is currently showing up from the cloud. I believe once I do this I will again be able to copy the category to the new folder.

I hope I'm in Windows 7 forum.

Like a fool I dowloaded iCloud and sent all my contacts to iCloud. Now, when I open a contact and make a notation then want to enter a reminder, I get the message "the item is in a folder that does not support reminders". Well, something like that. How can I go back to the way it was - without iCloud? I don't want iCloud. All the help is on Apple forum and I own a PC.

I have a new Windows 10 laptop and I have migrated most everything from my previous laptop that I wanted and everything has been working pretty good up to now. I use Outlook 2007 for POP3 email and had installed in on the new LT and moved my PST and all was working good with email, contacts and calendar after much help from here: https://forums.techguy.org/threads/...le-on-new-windows-10-pc.1163278/#post-9186499. Yesterday I decided to move my iTunes from the old LT to the new LT and I installed ITunes and ICloud on the new LT and synced it with my iPhone 6. Thought all was well until this morning when I'm checking my POP3 email account. All my email downloaded no problem and I was able to read everything. When I went to send email I found that iCloud had emptied my Contacts and replaced it with iCloud contacts which essentially is the ones that I had on my phone. (My iPhone contacts are still there.) If I click the "To" field in the email it does bring up my outlook contacts that I had on my computer before the iCloud debacle and it does let me select them. However when I send them I get an immediate undeliverable message from system administrator saying:
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

When I was using iCloud (I stopped because it gave me too many headaches) I deleted a recurring event and now I keep getting hundreds and hundreds of Appointment Series deletions showing in my Deleted folder.

Every once in a while, I have to go to my Deleted folder to find something but my deleted emails are scattered amongst these hundreds of Appointment Series deletions.

Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

I understand that one person may not have all the answers to all the parts of this; I am on an iphone forum as well, trying to figure ... Read more

I want to reinstall XP.

I set the computer to boot to the CD drive.

Then I got an error message saying "No boot record found" (referring to the XP Home CD) in the CD drive, so the XP CD will not boot (I guess).

Then I rebooted by turning off the computer and turning the computer on via the switch taking me to the desktop.

I clicked on the CD drive icon so I could get access to the XP CD.

I clicked on the "reinstall XP" option but then I got the message saying I could not reinstall XP because the version on my hard drive is newer than the XP version on my XP-Home CD.

I have Acronis so I can wipe the disc clean.

However, if I wipe disc clean and reboot with an Acronis emergency CD, what do I do after I reboot using the emergency CD?

I had Office 2010 installed temporarily a WHILE ago. I have had 2007 installed for a while again..suddenly I started getting the error message that Outlook profile was created with a newer version of Outlook. I have tried everything to get this fixed..with no luck..

1. Deleted mail folder. Made new mail profile in Windows and in Outlook. Didn't change anything despite losing messages. I created "new" mail profile for 2007, and it is still telling me profile was created in Newer Version
2. I totally deleted and reinstalled Office..still getting error message..

This is driving me crazy. It's not a big deal-Outlook still works. It is just bugging me..

I told someone I would ask here. They apparently goofed a reinstall and I couldn't answer this. Anyway below is his post:

"I incorrectly read the instructions and assumed that I could install any version with my home premium key. So I installed Ultimate edition. 5 days later an activation reminder came up.

Now I'm stuck without being able to restore my activation and can't activate with the key I have.

Is there any other option besides reinstalling the OS that I can do ? Is there a way to 'downgrade' ultimate to home premium without loosing everything? Thanks for any suggestions."

Any suggestions?

A:Installed the wrong version for my key

You will have to re-install the OS and choose The Home Premium Version...

You can not downgrade from Ultimate to Home Premium..

You will also have to backup your data as it will be erased when you re-install..

You could try Windows 7's backup feature...To back everything up..if you have a lot of files and folders..

Hope this Helps..

EDIT: You should be able to re-install your OS with the same key, Just make sure you install it under Windows 7 Home Premium..Do you have the DVD?

Hey. I have a processor that says it supports both 32-bit and 64-bit, however I don't know which one I'm actually running on. I have a hunch I'm running the 32-bit, considering I get an error code saying that my setup.exe is not supported by Win32.

So I have a couple of questions:

1) Very Important: I put in the my email that I used and the last 5 digits of the credit card that I used to purchase Windows 7 so I can go back to the download page (https://windows7.digitalriver.com/DR...trollerServlet) - and it says it can't "verify" me.

2) I have a back up disc coming to my house - but I don't know whether it is the 64-bit or 32-bit version, how would I be able to tell?

3) Is 64-bit that much different than 32-bit? The reason I wanted to get Windows 7 now was because I had to wipe my computer clean just a few days ago, so I thought "why not." It seemed to be running fine on 32-bit before (assuming it was on 32bit), so what's the difference?


A:Installed the 64-bit version (by mistake)

Hi yoman3, and Welcome To The Seven Forums.
Could you please give your system specs, it would help us determine the system speed (32 or 64 bit).

If your system is 64 bit it is the best way to go. If it isn't you wouldn't be able to install the 64 bit onto a 32 bit machine.

Yesterday my girlfriends laptop went a little crazy on us, after a few hours I gave up and decided to re-install windows on her laptop and give it a much needed fresh start. She had no Windows CD or even a sticker on the bottom with the specific operating system. So I winged it from my own memory and guessed it was W7 Professional 64bit. Well the install worked perfectly, until I noticed it wouldn't connect to the Internet because the drivers couldn't be found. I figured this meant that i had installed the wrong version of Windows, maybe i had a 64bit vs 32bit problem? Is there any way I can find out what version was previously on it so we can get the right one on the computer? Thanks!

A:Installed Wrong W7 Version?

I have burnt a Windows 7 .iso to a disc and I was wondering if anyone else with a burnt/real copy do you have a choice of installing Starter, Business, Professional or Ultimate.???

I thought this was just me, I was like why would they just give you the other of the OS for free. They didn't do that with XP.

And, I installed Windows 7 starter as I only have 448mg of ram and I currently run Linux. But anyways, I'm buying a new computer it costs 439$ here are the specs.

320gig Sata harddrive.
3gig of ram - 4 total slots, 3 used, 1 free.
No monitor - I have one no need to buy another one.
A intel processor - Forgot which one.

That's about basically the importants of it.

I was going to buy this temporarly until I get a job in april but I wanted to know with 3gig of ram which OS should I use. I could use the one that requires 3gigs of ram(Professional) and I have a question about that. When you use a OS shouldn't you have some free ram or should you max it out???

See if I install starter(Crappy) then I would have 2gig of FREE ram but if I install Business(I might just install it - I'll give a reason why.) I would have 1 gig of ram..

Now, the reason why I would most likely use business and the reason why I don't want to.

A:PRE-Installed Windows (Any version)

An original Win7 ISO image does not give you a possibility to choose which version you'd like to install. From your post I read you do not understand how it is possible, so I think you got your ISO from somebody who has modified the original ISO (file ei.cfg removed).

I've had a week of the perfect storm of problems with my multi PC setup! But without boring everyone with the details, I reinstalled win7 home premium, recovered my setup key from a backup after recovering part of the backup from WHS, only to realize the key is for professional, not home premium!

So basically I installed the wrong version of Win7 and it wont allow me to enter the key saying rightly that I'm entering a key to the wrong product.
I also attempted to do an anytime upgrade but that fails without message. I think it is failing because the installed product is not registered yet.

At this point the last thing I want to do is a reinstall because I just finished a weeks worth of work to get the fresh install back to the state I need it in.

How can you tell what IE browser you have installed? I'm afraid I created a compatibility issue by installing 8, over 9, but I can't tell.

When a pop-up from IE asked for my permission to install 8, I said yes, because 9 has caused me problems in the past. Right afterward, it started acting funny. It's been updating a lot, and often wants to update 9, never 8, but then I'm getting popups from IE asking if I wanted to install 9. Which is it? On or off? If 9 is installed, can I uninstall it in favor of 8?

I have just installed 1.5, after my version 0.8 stopped downloading emails from my server. On the day it happened I received 6 emails when I opened Thunderbird and then could get no more. Now I disinstalled the earlier version, though when I installed 1.5 to my surprise my whole address book and settings were there.

(i) now when I open Thunderbird those six emails mentioned above keep re-appearing, despite my having deleted them about 25 times! I checked 'empty trash on exit' in settings, but it seems to have no effect. How can I get rid of them?
(ii) my email signature appears at the bottom of my email when I click 'write', but two of the links appear simply as underscores without words. How can I resolve this?
(iii) could it be that I did not properly remove version 0.8 (though it does not appear in my list of programs). How do I ensure it is not 'lurking' somewhere on my computer?
(iv) although I checked 'check for messages every 5 minutes', I only seem to get new ones on opening.
(v) I have two email accounts (separate servers) and with the earlier version I could click the 'get mail' button and it would search the second server; now when I click on 'get mail', nothing happens; why not, I wonder?

And they weren't able to find all the driver updates and installations (which doesn't chock me cause it's the wrong version of windows). I went on the sony vaio website and found the proper driver installations. But it's not compatible with my laptop anymore cause it's the wrong version of windows.. What can I do to go back to my windows 7 home premium 64-bit? Where can I get it from.. I don't have any CDs.. And how do I reinstall the proper drivers etc?
Because right now the drivers for the "base system device" and the "ethernet controller" are missing and I can't connect to the internet using a cable. :/

If you had it fixed at a store or sent it in to get fixed then who ever fixed it should be held responsible for installing the correct version of Windows, and I would insist that they do it for free.
