#($@! Palm Desktop 6.2 seems to have locked me out. Help?

by emotion_pictures / February 24, 2010 6:35 AM PST

I have a new Windows 7 system and bought Office 2007.
But it doesn't have Outlook and Outlook no longer exists.
So I installed my Palm Desktop 6.2 contact software despite
my Palm Z22 being broken. It worked great for a week while
I entered all my data. Now that it's in, Palm Desktop has
stopped showing all the apps except for INSTALL as if to say,
"Now plug in a Palm PDA or adios, data." That said, you can't
even walk into a store and buy a Z22 anymore, so other than
ebay options I'm pretty hosed. Am I missing something or have
I summed up a fairly crappy situation? At this point I'd
settle for getting the data back and flushing the software.

Outlook Express no longer exists. Now, the stripped Outlook - without Business Contact Manager - costs $110 at Best Buy.

GoPro, Pixpro, or Ricoh?

You can spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a 360-degree camera. We tested three of them to find out what kind of quality and ease of use you can expect at each price point.
