Just downloaded Office 365. Generally pleased. However, after spending an obscene amount of time trying to get icloud to work with Outlook 2013 on my laptop I decided to post a question here.
As far as I can tell it appears that icloud isn't connecting with Outlook. No data file for it appears in the list of Outlook data files. No "refresh icloud." Nothing. When I click the link in icloud that allows me to set up icloud on outlook nothing happens. In fact, now the link simply seems not to show up.
Strangely, it works perfectly fine on my desktop and has for months (even when I was running the preview) ... no idea why.
I have uninstalled, reinstalled, repaired both programs, and a whole list of other things with no luck. Every time I launch icloud I get an error msg that states something like" Microsoft office has an encountered a problem that prohibits it from working correctly..." and then offers me the option to repair. I've gone through the exercise of repairing this a dozen times to no avail.
I'm running office on windows 7 sp1 64-bit with the 32-bit version of outlook (which may be the only one available, it's the one that automatically downloaded).
Has apple released a workable update for icloud? On one thread it said the two were compatible as of Nov. 2012. And it's clearly working on my desktop.
I'd love any feedback from anyone that would help shed some light on this for me.
I suggest you update the iCloud to the latest version to see if the issue persists.
In order to solve this problem as soon as possible, I suggest you contact Office 2013 support for assistance.
