Installed Windows 8 and Office 2013 in a virtual machine yesterday – and I’m glad I chose to do it that way: it seems that the Google Apps sync tool isn’t working yet!
If you search for the 64-bit installer you’ll find Google’s download page for the MSI file, but the standard link generates this error when trying to set things up. Not so helpful.
After installing the 64-bit MSI and launching the tool manually, we still can’t create a new profile.
Interestingly, the import profile option is greyed out, so something is really not working there.
Hopefully Google addresses this soon, but in the meantime, stay with Office 2010 if you rely on this.
The only other option at this stage seems to be IMAP, which is fine for email but not other Outlook data.
UPDATE 9 June 2013: It’s now officially supported by Google. Tried it out last week and it works a treat on a clean installation.
The only difference to be aware of (that I’ve found) is that the screen that formerly asked for your username and password now only asks for your username, or email address. It then shoots you off in your broswer to Google, asking you to authorise Outlook in much the same way as a 3rd party Twitter app requests authorisation. Authorise it, close the browser window and continue as previously.
