I've got an HTC Desire and since I got it, I've been synchronising the contacts on my phone with the "Contacts" folder in Windows 7 using HTC Sync 2.something

I noticed HTC Sync 3 was available, so I uninstalled version 2 and installed version 3, but it only seems to support syncing with contacts in Outlook or Outlook Express.

Am I missing something massively obvious? It seems odd to remove support for a current feature (Windows 7 Contacts) while retaining support for a program (Outlook Express) that hasn't been current since Windows XP.

Quite possibly, the Contacts folder has been officially deprecated. It exists for Vista compatibility where it was introduced for the first time. I have not yet tested the 3.0 sync app. I am still using 2.x and sync with Outlook.
