    Sync pc to tablet (address book and calendar)

    Help - following the instructions, I went to the asus website to download to my pc the necessary files to sync my calendar and address book with my tablet. However, after download, (Windows 7, 64 bit) I find that the files can not be opened as they are .rar files. Has anyone else encountered this problem and how do you get around it without buying access to a program to "unzip" the file? What I am doing wrong? It's very frustrating not to have access to my address book.

    Thanks
    Lisa

    Lisa I'm coming from a Mac so someone else maybe of more help but all I did was sync my Google account to my Transformer because all my email addresses are associated with Gmail and all of my calendar events are as well. Anyway if this isn't your answer hang in there and real help is right around the corner.

    Lisa,

    You need to go to www.rarlabs.com and download a copy of WinRAR. It is free and then you can unzip this file and install it on your computer. rar files are the same a zip, just a different format. Here is a direct link to the 64 bit installation file.

    I am in the same boat as Mickey, I use my google account to keep my work PC and may Mac in sync, adding the TF made it easy to keep everything sync'd online. I did download and install the sync and discovered it was not for any settings or apps so it is pretty much useless for my purposes.

    Let us know if you need more help on using WinRAR and we will try to help you out.

    Thank you for your assistance. This worked well - and while it only syncs the contacts list and calendar from outlook, this is what I needed it to do. Appreciate the help!

    After you connect, there is a popup in the notification area (near clock) that you have to tap to put the TF into sync mode. Then it will pop up the sync software on the PC.
