  1. Has Microsoft fixed the issue of importing contacts using .vcf?


    I've read the questions and answers on here. The mindless people telling us to stop asking for features that you have not built. Have you fixed this issue yet? Build in the functionality that your customers ask for. We pay you. You do not pay us.I do not want my Google calendar in the Microsoft calendar at all. I have left Google behind.I do not want any part of my Google mail in the Microsoft Mail Exchange at all. I have left Google behind.Why is it too much to ask, that these huge corporations get out of bed with each other and give us independent options?? I am not your property or theirs.

    Application error in importer DLL while importing vcf to Win contacts.


    Hi,
    I am not sure if this is the suitable forum section or not.
    I have exported my Android cellphone contacts into a single VCF file.
    Then, I have sent that VCF file to my Windows 10 notebook via Bluethooth.
    However, while importing contacts to Windows 10 Contact folder from that VCF file, I found this error:

    My contacts were put one after another until I got faced with this error below. About 91 contacts have been already imported into Windows 10 contacts folder.
    However, then I was faced with error below. I don't know if this means that my contacts have reached to the end in the VCF file or not since I don't know how many contacts are there in the file. However, if so, I think, I would have been notified that the import process had completed well.
    How to fix this error.

    Bear in mind these points:
    1- that there were 511 contacts exported from my Android phone memory to my SD as a vcf file while using "export/import" option under phone contacts. Exporting contacts in Android phones can only export contacts as vcf file?

    2- Hoping to edit contacts saved in one single vcf file , and while intending to remove all data in my phone memory and SD, I sent the vcf file to my Windows 10 notebook via the Bluetooth to be imported there into my Windows 10 user 's contacts folder. So, to be able to edit contacts on my Windows 10, I had to open the contacts folder and selected "import" option . After that, I have navigated to vcf file. Finally, contacts were put one after another in that folder and I edit what I want to edit until I was faced that error.
    I wanted to edit my Android phone contacts on my Windows 10 notebook since I have two reasons: the first is that my contacts saved on my phone memory are messed up. So, I am hoping to organise them on my notebook and keep a backup on my notebook. Then I will export back the edited contacts to a vfc file to be imported to my phone memory. The other i that notebook screen is far wide to edit contacts comfortably.

    3- I imported contacts from vcf file to my Windows 10 user account's contacts folder. On my windows 10 notebook, I didn't use any Windows Live Mail or Outlook Express .
    Did you mean Windows Live Mail is packed in Windows 10 installation by default? If not, then I did not use any mail Apps at all while importing.

    4- that I have been trying to only import multiple contacts which are packed in one single vcf file. So while importing those contacts from vcf file to Windows 10 user account contacts folder, I was prompted with a "contact properties" Window, in each time click on OK, then I see contacts were put one after another in contacts folder of windows user account I m logger into. On other words, once I clicked on import option , then navigated to where vcf file is, then I saw that contacts were put in contact folder of Windows user account one after another until I got to one contact (I posted its screenshot previously) where I was faced with that error. Thus, my problem is NOT in your speech "importing multiple contacts, it is better to use .csv. When importing .vcf files, they need to be imported one at a time. "
    The issue is the error appearing after I clicked on "OK" in the prompted window of that specific contact to let it be put/add in the contact folder as I did with others I was prompted with before.
    So that error interrupted the process although there are still other contacts in the vcf file which I was still not prompted with as I was prompted with those already added. All contacts which were put/ imported from vcf file to Windows 10 user account's contacts folder were 91 out of 511.

  3. Import/Export Contacts


    Hi,

    Basically, I want to manually sync contacts back and forth, between my computer and my phone.

    Going from computer to phone, the easiest way for me has been exporting/backing up the computer's .vcf file, moving it to my phone, delete my phones current contact list, and then importing the .vcf file from the computer, which instantly results in an complete, updated list.

    However, going in the other direction is my problem.

    If I try to do the same in reverse, trying to import the .vcf file into the computer contacts, it wants to do it one contact at a time, instead of the full list all at once.

    I suppose they can be Imported/Exported thru gmail, but I would prefer doing it directly...phone contacts only, without importing gmail contacts

    Thanks

  4. Has Microsoft fixed the issue of importing contacts using .vcf?

    Application error in importer DLL "Windows Mail\wabimp.dll' while importing VCF file to Windows 10 Contacts folder

    Thanks lot,

    Yes, but originally my issue is in your 2 step above, i.e. while importing a
    combined VCF file(Not individual VCF file) to my Windows 10 user account's contact folder, I was faced with that error. Not all contacts combined in the VCF were imported/added to my Windows 10 user account's
    contact folder. However, after about 90 contacts extracted from combined VCF file and imported/added to Windows 10 user account folder, I was faced with that error when getting to a specific contact being extracted in
    that combined vcf file. I.e. while Windows 10 was extracting the contacts from the VCF file, I was faced with that error when coming to a specific contact. I hope you understand me.

    On the other hand, when importing a CSV file to my Windows 10 contact folder, there is no error. However, I am asked to change the mab (select field text for contact fields). I found that contact fields are very strange. They are few in comparison to
    original contacts were exported from my Android phone.

    Why do you suggest Free VCF file to CSV converter ? I don't have any issue with importing from CSV files. However, importing from CSV was bad since the contacts fields to be added in the imported contacts to my Windows 10 user contacts folder from CSV
    were missed according to the original contacts saved in the CSV.
