Office 2010 CTP compatibility with Nokia PC Suite and Visual Studio 2008

I use the Nokia PC Sync feature to get my handphone calendar and Outlook calendar in sync.

A clean install of Windows 7 Professional, Office 2010 64-bit edition and Nokia PC Suite didn’t work out well—the PC Sync could not detect Outlook and thus cannot synchronize.

Apparently, Nokia PC Sync can only detect the 32-bit version of Office 2010. So I uninstalled the 64-bit version and installed the 32-bit version and everything works fine.

Then I installed Visual Studio 2008 Team Suite. It hung when I load up the designer for WebForms. Editing the ASPX file is OK though.

The solution I found was to reinstall

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller\Setup.exe

There are incompatible programs that I have not found a solution to. Office Live Workspace Addin cannot be installed and Acrobat Professional Addin needs to be disabled or it crashes Office. Please comment if you have the solution. Thanks!
