Windows 7 and Addressbook

Running GW 8.0.2 client on Win7. Never installs the same on any given PC. In this case Outlook 2013 wanted us to setup a profile before it would send email. It also threw up error message that the addressbook could not intialize and GW was not install correctly. I setup the requested profile and Outlook crashed at end of configuration. I removed WMS and reinstalled from the GW8.0.2 installation folder. GW is now replying to and sending email ok. However, the addressbook is not listing his personal addressbooks or frequent contacts. I did a repair on the install and it still does not list the books. It does list them on the left under the home folder. Frequent contacts is listed as a parent addressbook to the 2 personal addressbooks he has.

Thanks,
Bill

There are several levels of 8.0.2 as well as for 8.0.3, which are you
using? 32-bit or 64-bit Windows?
OutLook 2013 is a big part of the trip point as Microsoft has yet again
changed how things work. If you can work without it, you'll have a
better experience. Most of the discussions on coexistence has been
over in the GroupWise 2012 forum.

Re: Windows 7 and Addressbook

Thanks. Found an answer. Windows is 64-bit. You must install GW client before activating MS Office 2013 otherwise you get the problem I described. Can't use Outlook in this scenerio, but most of our users don't care.
