Sync now error: "Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook'" ...

Hi there Zissis,

I just found this gem of a program and thought that I finally could have my calendar on the phone.

When I run the first sync, I get an error message as shown in the image below. Full log at end of messager:
From the looks of it, I think it is my Microsoft.Vbe.Interop version that is wrong (12.0 instead of 11.0), but since I don't have administrator access, I can't download and install the Redistributable Primary Interop Assemblies myself. This was suggested as a solution here

I tried sidestepping the issue with using version 1.0.3 (not built on version 11.0), but it serves a set of different error messages when I try to Get My Google Calendars.

Is there something that can be done (on my or your part) to solve this?

Keep on the superb work!

Logdump from error message:
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

    < jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Hi all,

If you still have this problem - you could try to download the "Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook" assembly and put it in the same folder as the "OutlookGoogleSync" executable.

Follow the steps described here: in order to download the Primary Interop Assemblies and then extract from the .msi file the required .dlls

You should be able to do this without admin privileges (although, if you installed OutlookGoogleSync, you would have needed admin privileges there, too; so... how did you install it?)

Albertinix, that was just what was needed. Thank you very much.

With regards to installing OutlookGoogleSync withouth admin rights, I never installed it, just ran the executable file (from a file location with read and execute permission).
