Outlook Add-In for Windows Live Local now available

WLLlocal icon.gifThe Outlook add-in for Live Local, which adds a location tab and some toolbar buttons to your Outlook calendar, is available for download at outlook.local.live.com. With it, you can plot locations and driving directions on a Live Local map, include them in your calendar item, and share that with attendees or others. The download takes you through an Office Genuine Advantage screen, but validation is not required, at least not yet. The add-in also does not appear to work with Office 2007 Beta 2, and will not load as it cannot find Office 2003 or XP. I only had a quick look at it, but it installed easily, and looks to be a very useful tool. Looking forward to playing around with it more.
