Palm m515 Sync to MS Outlook 2007 - Free Solution

The original installation for my m515 included Palm Desktop and Chapura's PocketMirror providing conduits for synchronization between Palm and MS Outlook. Migration to Microsoft Office 2003 brought the sync problem for the fist time and Chapura released the free of charge update PMStdUpdate3171.exe to address the issue. Now after upgrading to MS Office 2007 a similar problem appeared again - Palm to Outlook synchronization got broken.

This time Chapura offered only a "pay for upgrade" option, but luckily Palm itself provided a solution to the issue. To get the sync working again:
  1. Uninstall the old Palm Desktop and Chapura Pocket Mirror;
  2. Download and install Palm Desktop 6.2;
  3. Setup synchronization options and do the sync.

I have it working OK at the office and at home with Outlook 2003 and 2007 both in Windows XP. Also there is a separate conduit update from Palm to support Outlook 2007 if you don't want to re-install whole package, but I did not check whether it works with the old Palm Desktop or does not.
