Outlook 2010 Beta - "Not Implemented" on Send/Receive

I yesterday installed the Office 2010 beta and almost immediately came across a fairly serious "bug". It's debatable whether the bug was caused by Microsoft (i.e. a fault on the part of Office) or by myself, as you'll see when I explain what I did and what the solution is.

What I did.

1 - Installed Office 2010 x86 as a side-by-side install with 2007 (on Windows 7 x86).
2 - Ignored the "reboot now" prompt as I needed to open and print a word document
3 - Opened the document in Word 2007
4 - Waited whilst Office 2007 setup did *something*
5 - Printed document and closed word.
6 - Rebooted
7 - Loaded Outlook 2010

This is where my problems began. I received an error message about "Default Programs" over the top of the splash screen, the "backstage" screen was perpetually telling me that my files were being upgraded and that I needed to update the "Connector". Also, when clicking "Send/Receive" I received a "Not Implemented" modal dialog. It's also worth mentioning that Outlook was absent from the Default Programs control panel applet.

How I solved it.

1 - Uninstalled Office 2010
2 - Rebooted
3 - Re-installed Office 2010
4 - Rebooted
5 - Loaded Outlook 2010

Et Voila, problem solved.

About Rob

I've been interested in computing since the day my Dad purchased his first business PC (an Amstrad PC 1640 for anyone interested) which introduced me to MS-DOS batch programming and BASIC.

My skillset has matured somewhat since then, which you'll probably see from the posts here. You can read a bit more about me on the about page of the site, or check out some of the other posts on my areas of interest.
