vendredi 11 septembre 2009 12:02I have recently installed Windows 7 on my computer. Everything went well there and I have had no problems. I also installed Office 2007 and I have just discovered a problem with Outlook and contacts. Every time I try to add a phone number in a contact, a dialogue box pops up asking for Location Information. The first field is the Country/Region which has a drop down box however there is nothing in it. I am totally unable to choose anything. Filling in an area code isn't enough. Once this box pops up, I cannot get out of it for nothing. I cannot even cancel out of it. I am forced to do an "End Program". It is my understanding that Outlook gets this info from the information contained in the Regional and Language settings in the control panel. I have checked this and everything is filled in correctly. I am not sure what to do here other than to possibly try re-installing Outlook. Any ideas?

To avoid the Location Information Dialogue box in Outlook 2007 you need to configure it. once you configure then Location Information Dialogue will not appear.

Assuming you do not use your computer's to make phone calls through Microsoft tools (e.g. Outlook), just disable the telephony service.
1. Hit start and type in "services.msc".
2. Scroll Down to "Telephony" and double click it.
3. Disable and click "Apply".
Presto, no more annoying location information popups. I don't know why Microsoft assumes people would ever want to use Windows to make phone calls, but for some stupid reason they do. It should come disabled and give you the option to enable it if you want to do that, rather than having this mysterious and annoying window which 99% of people will never use.
I don't think this affects 3rd party VOIP programs, e.g. Skype, as long as they aren't trying to use the Windows-stored info (I can't imagine they would).
