    Do you run it on the device?
    Outlook library is only supported on WM5.0 and WM6.0 devices.
    If it is a WM5.0 device you should install .Net CF 2.0 and follow these instructions:

    Can you post the code that gives you the error message?

    Here is a code to show all the contacts (from the library manual):
    Don't forget to add the two objects and create a form with a ListBox.
