Outlook & Icloud

Outlook version

Monday my Outlook 2007 and ICloud were working perfectly. Then I upgraded my Iphone and Ipad to the latest IOS (8.0.2). As a result, my outlook calendar (Icloud) disappeared. Coincidence? Maybe. But now, after repeated attempts, nearly 20 times, including deleting ICloud Control Panel, restarting computer, repairing
Outlook, nothing will allow me to re-establish my calendar. My calendar is my lifeline.

I can get Icloud Control to re-load and I follow the steps to coordinate the two programs exactly. Icloud Control asks for "all" or "some" calendars to install, and I select some, because there are numerous calendars which have zero info in them, like pocketmirror, so I de-selected these and checked only the ones showing data in them.

The "sync" starts, gets to step 4 of 7 (uploading contacts to Icloud then downloading from Icloud) then I get the message "Your setup couldn't be started because of an unexpected error" every time.

I don't understand how this can work fine for months, then all of a sudden not work, and then not be able to re-install.

The problem is, if Icloud won't run with Outlook, as it did for months, now I cannot find any of my calendar dates and events anywhere. If I can re-establish the past and future events that were already in my Outlook calendar, I would say, "the hell with ICloud" and move on.

I need assistance from anyone who has a solution. I am running Windows 8.1 (64 bit). Itunes is 32 bit (don't ask me why that is, but it is), I have no idea what ICloud is (can't find a way to determine this version), and Outlook 2007 is (12.0.6691.5000) SP3 MSO (12.0.6683.5000).
Did you ever find a solution to this? I am working on the same issue on a friend's computer.

By the way, if you have not solved this yet, you can at least log in to www.icloud.com and see your calendar so you can keep up with your appointments.
I think iTunes is 32bit because outlook is 32bit - it needs 32bits for integration. If iTunes updated recently, its iCloud 4. Open the iCloud from the control panel or the notification tray (right click on the iCloud icon) and the version will be in the upper right (i think).
