    Just got an iPad and installed iTunes9 on an Win-Vista box for "validation". It crashed an Outlook 2007 install that had been stable for years. "Crash" means that Outlook attempt to open, flash a screen then disappears, and I can no longer open Outlook. It seems that the problem comes from buggy Apple SYNC dll's. Re-installation of Outlook will not solve the problem, only uninstall of iTunes9 will allow my mission-critical Outlook to operate ... but then, how do you even access iPad without iTunes, as iTunes9 is needed to recognize iPad ? Any idea how to solve that issue ?
    Problem found with Win-Vista/XP and Outlook 2007/2003/2000; I had no problem in the past with previous iTunes and iPod.
