Windows 7: Outlook 2010 & Blackberry synch workaround ?

Outlook 2010 & Blackberry synch workaround ?

First off, I hope I'm posting in the correct section;

Running Windows 7 x64 with Office 2010 x64 and of course, I've found out only afterwards that Blackberry Desktop Manager (v5.0.1.37) won't sync with Office 2010 x64 until 2011 from what I've read around the web...

When I go and configure synchrinization in BB Desktop Manager, it therefore doesn't find Outlook, but detects Outlook Express (which not longer even exists in Windows 7), but I select Outlook Express anyway, and simulate a sync operation: it find 1 single contact on the computer that it wants to copy to my blackberry. Hmmmm...

Searching the computer some more, I find it's the default contact created when I first installed windows 7, and it's in the default 'Contacts' folder under C:/Users/myprofile/Contacts

Then I thought (and this is my question to any who might have an idea if this could work), could I find a work around the problem to :
1. have my Outlook contacts synchronized to the default Contacts folder ? (just placing a contact there results in creatting a *.msg file, which is not supported by Blackberry Desktop Manager of course)
2. to be able to then sync with the Blackberry (Bold by the way)
3. then redo step 1 the other way around, in order to get the contacts created by the Blackberry freshly imported back into Outlook (in the correct .pst of course).

It seems impossible and I've tried quite a few things like exporting to a csv file and re-importing to Windows Mail, but I'm in a jam... and the only viable solution would be to downgrade to a previous version of Office... (which I would love NOT to do).

Thanks for any help
