Whenever I try to install Outlook Social Connector for LinkedIn, I get an error that says “Installation of Microsoft Outlook Social Connector requires Microsoft Office Outlook version 2003 or Microsoft Office Outlook version 2007”. I am running the 64 bit version of Outlook 2010. How can I get this installed?

Yea, no 64bit Linkin OSC connector which is insane. I've asked Linkedin for an offical response and possible ETA so....

Outlook Social connector (OSC) 32-bit is not compatible with the Outlook 2010 64-bit. Please check the "System Requirement" section in the below link which explain more about the same.

You also check the below link which explains the working of OSC. Check the "NOTE" section which explains the same.

It is not true - for x64 for FB and LM:

I have been able to install working providers for Facebook and Live on my Outlook 2010 64bit. Only the LinkedIn provider doesn't show, which is bad cause I use LI a lot. Common, LinkedIn.Help us out!

It's so stupid that Linkedin didn't develop a 64bit version yet. The installer doesn't mention any problems when trying to install it with a 64bits outlook though. I've got a 32bit version of Outlook on my laptop which is working flawelessly with LinkedIn. So when i tried to install it on my new computer i was very suprised that a 64bit version of outlook is the problem here...

anybody in the loop on when a 64bit version will be available?
