Outlook Integration with Project Server 2007

Microsoft has published a TechNet article on Installing the Outlook Add-In for Project Server 2007. It is very detailed but it leaves out two issues that I have come across.

The first issue is that the default Office 2003 language setting must be US English. Perhaps there is some language pack out there to resolve this... I'll let you know if I find out.

The second issue is that sometimes the installation seems to succeed and the synchronization works, but the tasks or appointments do not have the custom forms for PWA that they should. I have encountered this only with Outlook 2003. To resolve this: in Outlook / Tools / Options/ Other (tab) / Advanced Options / Custom Forms / Manage Forms ... For each "Project Web Access Appointment" or "Project Web Access Task"... Click Properties / and Deselect Hidden.
