For the past two days, my Blackberry Desktop software has crashed when it was trying to read the Outlook calendar entries. Rebooting didn’t help, and I really didn’t want to reinstall software and go through the pain of resynchronizing.

Luckily, the solutions was relatively simple. After Googling around for a bit, I came across this post on, describing an easy and effective way to make my Blackberry’s calendar match my Outlook calendar (again).

The KB entry referenced (KB 11703 on the BlackBerry Technical Solution Center) describes the procedure for Windows 2000/XP. The procedure is similar on Windows Vista, the only difference is that the Intellisync folder is located at C:Users<user name>AppDataRoamingResearch In MotionBlackBerryIntellisync. You don’t even have to reconfigure the synchronization settings - after deleting the Intellisync directory, start the Desktop Manager and synchronize your Blackberry.

But I have to agree with the post directly below the solution: I wonder what got it messed up to begin with…
