Getting Outlook 2013 to Work with Google Apps Sync

UPDATE*** Its now supported https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gappssync ***

 

Google Does not support Office 2013 yet with Google Aps sync. But I wanted to find a way for me to get it working, I found a detailed discussion on Google Groups that provided the answer. I have been able to get Outlook 2013 working with Google Apps Sync. Credits Go to  wcodyanderson of Google Groups, for finding the original DLL swap idea. These are the steps I took. I was on Windows 8 64-bit, with office 2013 32 bit to start.

  1. Removed all Office from PC
  2. Copied gsync32.dll and unifiedlogin.dll to these two locations; (DLL’s from C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Apps Sync)
    1. – C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15
    2. – C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15
  3. Installed Outlook 2010 (32 Bit)
  4. Ran Application Sync and setup profile
  5. Upgraded to Outlook 2013 (32 Bit)
  6. Re-Ran Application Sync and setup profile
  7. Opened Outlook and it started syncing everything.
Of Course not supported by Google, Good Luck

    1. Hey Dave, I did try getting the 64-bit Office to work. I was getting one of two errors (Google Apps Sync would error out with you need to get the 64-bit version, or it would fail to create the profile.) Hope this helps
