In 0.40 version, you can download (beside Winxp Orbiter) small program that would import Outlook contacts and export it to Pluto Phone book...

try it....Dan said that it should work, but doesn't for me....

Rob.

@tinia

I have just tried installing and running the importcontacts application, and unfortunately you get further than me.  I configure the connect section select outlook and I receive the following runtime error.

Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Pluto\ImportContacts\ImportContacts.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.



I am trying to run the application on Windows XP SP2.

Is there a minimum version of Outlook required or does the problem sit somewhere else ?

Does this program work only with Outlook? Can you provide API to add contacts to the Pluto? In this case people can develop an exporter by them self.

that sounds good but i'm affraid we don't have such thing. the program is very simple (if i may say :) isn't a nasa countdown for launching the shutle)
and you can find the sources in svn. it connects to a database and to outlook and transfers data, in our case contact.
may be you can engineer it to fit your needs.
