Reading & Writing data from & to outlook using C# and Interop.outlook DLL

P: 1

I am currently working on a tool to transfer addressbook data such as contacts and organizations between Vondle and Outlook.

For those of you who are wondering what Vondle is, it is an online project management toolkit used to support large engineering projects.
More information on Vondle can be found at .

The purpose of the tool is to fluently transfer addressbook data between vondle & outlook. I've found a way to do this using the Interop.Outlook DLL, which is freely available.

The problem that arises is when you use different versions of outlook on the same system, the program I wrote gets confused.
At first, I used Outlook 2003 to transfer the data. The data got transferred correctly and was correctly shown in my tool.
Later on I tested the program with Outlook 2007. I uninstalled Outlook 2003 and installed 2007.

Now the data is still transferred correctly, but the tool only lists the contacts that were transferred previously from vondle to outlook 2003 and not the contacts recently transferred from vondle to outlook 2007. I have no idea how this is happening.

If someone has experienced similar problems transferring data from and to outlook, be sure to let me know. I would really appreciate it.
