Hi, I have a new windows 10 PC running Fall Creators Update version of Windows Pro 10. I have Office 2016 installed (version 1711, 64-bit, click-to-run type installation, not Windows store apps) as well as iCloud for Windows version 7.2 installed (latest download from iCloud site). All updates are done.
Outlook works fine, I see my emails, can send receive. Checking Account information there is a default profile setup (just called Outlook) set via either control panel or Account Settings in Outlook. Email is *** Email address is removed for privacy *** (i.e. not an @iCloud.com address) but works correctly on my older Windows 10/ Office 2013 (Outlook 2013) setup. Datafiles are setup in a similar fashion and, as mentioned, Outlook works fine.
iCloud for Windows installed without problems (now that I am not using Windows Store Apps for Office). iCloud for Windows worked fine for Photos, iCloud Drive, and Bookmarks.
HOWEVER Mail, Contacts, Calendar and Task will not sync with Outlook 2016. The error reported is "Setup can't continue because Outlook isn't configured to have a default profile. Check your Outlook settings and try again."
Outlook does have a default profile established and looking through the registry the registry keys seem to be set correctly for Outlook. I have tried complete uninstall/reinstall of Windows, Office, iCloud a couple of times, I've tried vs 5.1, 6.0, and 7.2 for iCloud hoping that it worked previously.
Google says this seems to be somewhat common with new installations (i.e. not upgrades from Office 2013). I saw an older thread here but it was unresolved (and is now locked) so decided to ask again.
Does anyone know the registry keys that iCloud uses to locate the Outlook profile? Has anyone had this issue and been able to resolve it?
Thanks in advance
