Hi, I am having problems syncing the Galaxy S to Samsungs Kies software, which in turn allows you to sync with Outlook. Spoken to Samsung support but no result and they blame a faulty handset. Orange say not and suggested I try XDA. Is there any other software out there that can allow the phone to sync with Outlook? Thanks for any help.

Are you using Launcher Pro by any chance?

Correct me if I'm wrong, you plan to sync it via USB with your desktop Outlook and not via WIFI or Internet?

Any reason?

Moved to General forum. The development forum is only for development threads. (Threads with actual development happening.)
Questions should always be in the General forums (or Q&A if your device has a Q&A forum.)

I am having the same problem. You can connect through USB cabble and Wi-Fi? Where can I find a tutorial? Thanks

Same problem. Also administrator privilege error message
I am having the same problem with the Samsung Galaxy S and synching to Outlook. I'm using Kies with a cable. Orange is my service provider but have tried on Wifi as well and have the same error.

I get a message saying that I need Administrator Privilege permissions. I am logged in as the admin on my computer so not sure on this.

if you are running Vista or 7, you need to do a right click and select "Run As Administrator" option

Thanks Fido. Right click within Kies? Nothing happens. I'm running Windows 7. Have checked the settings and I do have administrator rights...

No right click the icon for Kies and then select Properties. Look for Run as Admin towards the bottom. Tick the box and save/okay the change.

Launch Kies which should now be fine.
