I was going to try this out to sync my work calendar to my google account, but after trying to run the application, it immediately fails and produces the log below.
I hope this will helps you find the problem.
EDIT: By the way, I have also tried the latest stable,, with the same result.

System details:
Win 7 64 bits
Outlook 2010 32 bits
No admin access

Hi hugomonteiro,

Thanks for posting - could you try v1.2.4 just posted and let me know if this fixes the problem?

After the last line in your log above, you should be getting something like:
2015-02-15 12:01:13,962 INFO 8 OutlookGoogleCalendarSync.OutlookFactory [30] - Outlook Version:
Did you use the ClickOnce installer or the zip file?

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the new version also does not work, exhibiting exactly the same problem with the same output being sent to the log file.

I have tried both the installer and the zip file.

The line you say should exist is not there so I guess it might be failing when trying to find outlook?

I appreciate any help you can give me.

All I can think is that either Outlook or some third party software is blocking the app from being able to talk to Outlook.

Maybe check in Outlook under Options > Trust Center and see what you have set for Macro Settings; Programmatic Access; DEP Settings...?

Hi, those settings are set as follows:
Programmatic Access: Greyed out with a selection of "Warn me ... when anti virus is inactive..." and anti virus status: valid
Macro settings: Notifications for digitally signed macros, all other macros disabled
DEP settings: Enable Data Execution Prevention mode checked

I hope this is useful.

Except for playing with the Macro and DEP settings, I'm not sure what else to suggest - sorry!
