Will Quicken ever be able to add information to Outlook for people using a 64 bit system?

    Clearly you have a good idea of what you want to see from Quicken to add to Outlook calendar.  Would you please share a few examples of your expectations?

    I'm assuming you're running 64-bit Outlook on a 64-bit Windows system...

    Highly doubtful. I do contract work on a old 32-bit application and was asked by a customer about supporting 64-bit Outlook MAPI. It's not technically possible unless the 32-bit app is rewritten as 64-bit, and for an old 32-bit application like the one I work on (and similarly, Quicken) that's non-trivial work. 

    Reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/client-developer/outlook/mapi/building-mapi-applications-on-32-bit-and-64-bit-platforms

    Money quote: "This is because a 32-bit application cannot load a 64-bit Msmapi32.dll file."

    The only way this could work is if you're running 32-bit Outlook. It could run on either 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. Our customer was unwilling to switch to 32-bit Outlook.
