Windows 7: Any way to run Outlook 2007 in XP Compatibility mode?

Any way to run Outlook 2007 in XP Compatibility mode?

Hi, all

I am using Outlook 2007 on Windows 7 RC1 (7100) with Franklin Covey PlanPLus for Outlook v.6 add-on. This add-ob really gets slow at times. I asked tehir support, they said windows 7 is not supported (ah, that was easy to forsee).

Before I try the thing on XP - I want to try running Outlook in XP Compatibility Mode. When I try this Outlook starts, but cannot find my profile (or any profiles whatsoever).

Ok, windows 7 keeps Outlook data differently from Win XP. But how can I create a profile for XP compatibility mode? The craziest thing is run a control panel which creates profiels in XP Compatibility mode, or reinstall outlook (or start it with some command-line switch to pretend that it runs the very first time and force it to craete a profile while running in XP Compatibility mode?)

Anybody? Any ideas?

Well, not that I do not understand how to enable the XP Compatibility mode. I just said that I do not understand why when Outlook is launched in XP Compatibility mode, it cannot find its profiles and how to get around it.

thanks for the effort, though.
