I have a Dell Axim with a crappy battery. I'm more or less done using this device, however, I would like to get the contacts off of it. So, I am trying to sync with Windows Mobile Device Center. (I'm using Windows 7) In theory, this is supposed to sync with Microsoft Outlook. (I hate microsoft products, and try to use open source software when possible) Therefore I don't have and can't afford a full copy of Microsoft Outlook. However, I was able to download a trial copy, good for the next 60 days. I've installed it, yet when I run Windows Mobile Device Center and try to sync my contacts it won't let me check the little box next to Contacts. It says outlook is not installed.

I DO have a trial version of outlook installed, and it is working. But outlook doesn't show up under default programs either. Any thoughts on how I can get my contacts off of my Dell Axim?

Thanks for any help you can offer!
